"On November 3, the FDA will host an unprecedented discussion between the diabetes community and its senior agency leadership (both drugs and devices). The event will be live webcasted from 1 - 4 pm, and will include a panel of people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, as well as representatives from ADA, JDRF, and diaTribe. As a community of people touched by diabetes, we have a huge opportunity to present the numerous challenges we face each day, and we need as many opinions as possible to be a part of this discussion! With ADA, JDRF, and dQ&A input, we have created a survey posted at We are asking the entire diabetes community (type 1, type 2, gestational, caregivers, etc.) to please fill out this short survey and share thoughts on what's important when it comes to living with diabetes. This feedback will go DIRECTLY to the FDA and help influence the conversation on November 3. "

This is from DiaTribe and it is a great opportunity for you to make a difference. The survey has some general questions, but it also has a couple of places where you can share in your own words. Use it. Make yourself heard. You may think you won't make a difference. If you don't try, you will never know.

I don't think it will open until November 3rd. It has links inside the page that you can check out. Are those working?
