We're featured in the NY Times!

Our project is
featured in the NY Times as one of several grassroots groups pushing diabetes care into the future. We are so honored to be recognized alongside other amazing community efforts. If you're new to the project, check out our fundraising page on experiment.com for more info on the work we're doing and watch this blog for updates.
