OPEN FOR APPLICATIONS: The 2019 DiabetesMine Patient Voices Scholarship Contest!

Curated by Claudia Shannon / Research Scientist / ishonest

Our DiabetesMine Innovation forums — running strong since 2011 — continue to push for ever-fresh ways to highlight patient needs and stimulate technological advancements.

The “University” consists of our annual DiabetesMine Innovation Summit and the more deep-tech focused D-Data ExChange event that have traditionally run back- to-back each Fall in the San Francisco Bay Area. Class will be in session this year on Nov. 7-8, 2019, at the UCSF Mission Bay biotech conference center.

Our Innovation Days bring together informed patient advocates with leading Pharma and medical device leaders, healthcare designers, regulatory experts, clinicians, mobile health experts / visionaries, entrepreneurs, investors, and more.

How do we continue to push the envelope in the current digital-forward world… with commercial Automated Insulin Delivery (AID) systems on the horizon and a slew of new coaching programs to help patients thrive? In other words, what’s next?

Our 2019 workshops will cover new frontiers: novel methods for capturing and processing patient insights; how healthcare payors are working to “reinvent the customer experience”; new platforms to help patients make technology choices; and what to expect in the future of patient-led innovation.
