I am the Program Director of a nonprofit (Eyes Ears Nose and Paws) that trains Diabetic Assistance Dogs who alert their handlers when blood sugars move outside of target ranges. We train the dogs using scent detection (in other words, the dogs use their noses).
I am in need of volunteers with Type I diabetes who are willing to collect scent samples for us to using in training. It's very simple to do —- wiping a gauze pad over your skin and putting it in a ziplock bag when taking a blood glucose reading. We provide the supplies and postage.
If you would be interested in volunteering, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can provide more details and answer any questions.
Thanks for considering helping us with training —- and helping folks who receive our Diabetic Assistance Dogs!
