I’m happy to announce that Insulet is jumping into the social media arena with the launch of their new blog called Suite D. What’s particularly exciting is that I will be giving the parent perspective. Contributors include professional snowboarder Sean Busby and Type1Rider Tony Cervati. They will also share other guest voices.
My first post “Diabetes Show and Tell” describes ways in which you and your child may wish to share information about their diabetes with classmates.
You can read this welcome post by Sean Gallagher, Director of Marketing. Sean has was diagnosed with diabetes over 30 years ago.
Sean says, “Aside from advances in treatments and technology, the diabetes community also thrives on sources of inspiration and education. Our hope is that Suite D will serve as a place of encouragement and community for those of us with diabetes, as well as for our family and friends. Inside Suite D, we’ll focus on managing diabetes in ways that leave more room to enjoy the rest of what you love in life.”
Of course all of you OmniPodders should pop right over and take a look at Insulet’s new undertaking. But it’s my feeling that if your child uses a different insulin pump or manages diabetes with multiple daily injections, you will find lots of great information and inspiration at Suite D.
In full disclosure, Insulet is compensating me for the content that I create for them, which will minimally be every other month. But we are long time customers and pay for our pump supplies through our private insurance and personal income. This relationship will in no way alter how I discuss our use of their products when I write here on D-Mom Blog. Opinions are always my own. If I mention the Suite D blog or any of the posts I have written for them, it’s with this disclosure in mind. You can also read my full disclosure statement.
