2009 DiabetesMine Design Challenge!

It's time to get your creative juices flowing for the 2009 DiabetesMine Design Challenge, which was announced by Amy Tenderich of DiabetesMine this morning. A while back, Amy asked me if I would be willing to participate in the video announcement for this contest; of course I readily agreed! I strongly believe that huge strides in diabetes management could be made by improving the design of current medical devices, without necessarily requiring huge improvements in the medical technology itself. (Although, I would love to see some diabetes products that don't require expensive and high maintenance disposable parts. And of course a super-accurate, noninvasive blood glucose meter is the holy grail!)

View the video below, and check out the rules at the official contest page. There are top-notch judges and cash prizes of up to $10,000!
