At, we’ve just launched a new Patient Voices Contest in which e-Patients and hands-on caregivers can voice their concerns about diabetes device design directly to the Powers That Be!

The prizes for 10 winners of this exciting new contest are:

an all-expense-paid trip to the 2012 DiabetesMine Innovation Summit at Stanford University in Palo, CA (taking place Nov 16, 2012)

AND ….

a brand-spanking new iBGStar from Sanofi-Aventis, the first-ever plug-in glucose meter for the iPhone and iTouch!

To enter, patients and caregivers simply submit a 2-3 minute video describing what they would like to see from diabetes device makers, and what issues they have with the current technology.

The 10 winners selected will attend this year’s DiabetesMine Innovation Summit as "delegates" from the diabetes community. They’ll have the opportunity to share their ideas and concerns with Pharma R&D, product designers, mobile health experts, investors, gaming experts, regulatory folks and other stakeholders.

The deadline for entries is June 12, 2012.
