March Madness

It’s a busy month of shows for GlucoLift!

While we kicked off the month with a great TCOYD Conference in Tucson, the rest of March belongs to JDRF.

Last Saturday we hung out with our local chapter at their Meet the Scientists Day at the La Jolla Institute of Immunology. In addition to speeches by leading doctors and diabetes researchers, there was an exhibit area out in the glorious San Diego sunshine, with representatives from a number of companies and non-profits, including Insulindependence, TCOYD, Tandem, and Dexcom (all San Diego-based). In addition, TrialNet was on site doing blood draws for relatives of people with Type 1.

This coming Saturday we’re journeying east (just in time for a blast of winter weather) for the JDRF Research Summit in Bethesda, MD. Moderated by everybody’s favorite Miss America, Nicole Johnson, this event features talks on the Artificial Pancreas, islet cell encapsulation, and more, as well as youth programs.

Next Saturday, it’s back east again, this time to New England for JDRF Providence’s “Living Well with Diabetes” Expo, which will give us a chance to catch up our friends from Jerry the Bear, six until me, and Bigfoot Child Have Diabetes.

Finally, we’ll wrap up our shows for March with another TCOYD, this time a little closer to home in Santa Clara, CA (Still a flight, but a short one!).

We’re excited to have the chance to connect with so many people and show them that glucose tablets CAN be all-natural, non-chalky, and delicious. I hope some of you will be able to see us at one of these upcoming shows!

On the run!

Well, it’s definitely 2013.  It’s almost so deep into 2013 that saying “Happy New Year” is no longer appropriate (I’m still saying it though.  I’ll stop by February).

I’ve got a rapidly-filling calendar of shows and events we’ll be visiting this year, so hopefully one or more those will be in your area and you can come say hi.  I LOVE meeting our customers in person.

Our first event for 2013 is the Children with Diabetes Focus on Technology in Crystal City, VA on February 1-3.  If you’re in the neighborhood, I’m sure it’s going to be a great event.  This is the same group that puts on the wildly popular and totally amazing Friends for Life week in Orlando every summer (which we’ll also be attending).

This event will focus on the technological tools available for managing diabetes, and allow parents and children to learn about all of the different options and explore what might be the best fit for them.  There will also be a keynote speech by ultra-endurance athlete and Team Novo Nordisk (formerly Team Type-1) member Sebastien Sasseville.

If you’re not close to this event, we have lots more all over the map, and will be posting info about those as they get closer.

In the meantime, Happy New Year!

Coming to Austin with TCOYD!

I’m going to try to be better about posting our events here, for people who may not follow us on Facebook or Twitter (but please follow us on Facebook and Twitter!).

Our next appearance will be on December 1st in Austin, TX with the Taking Control of Your Diabetes crew, as well as the legendary Ben Vereen, and Chef Robert Lewis, The Happy Diabetic.  Check out the flyer below, and if you’re coming, be sure to say hi and pick up some samples at our booth!
