Hey guys, quite a bit of news today.

If you haven't checked it out, I posted a thread earlier about Accu-Chek's "Heroes of Diabetes", an interesting look at the major players in the creation of diabetic medication. It's somewhere around the forums if you want to take a look.

On top of that just got word that my organization (Juvenile Diabetes Cure Alliance) finished a new survey, asking people about what they know/how they feel about artificial pancreases.

I'm figured I'd post it here for anyone who may be interested in taking it. It's short ( 7 multiple choice questions), and we'd love for some people to take it and get their opinions on the subject.

Thank you very much for taking it! 22 years? When'd you get diagnosed? ( I just crossed into 10 years)

I'll post when new surveys are up, but if you signed up for the mailing list you'll get notifications in your email. We're using the survey's to gauge diabetics awareness of different efforts for a cure, so thank you very much for helping us!

I guess it'd be kind of hard to take the survey without, you know, a link.

It is a short and sweet survey. Is there more information on the artificial pancreas anywhere? It sounds interesting, but I have not read very much about it.
