Does anyone know how to actually get into the conference? I can't find a link directly to the conference and wanted to be sure that I found my way in - the e-mail said from the TuDiabetes home page, but there's no link to it.

Depends on the work day, but I'll try to be there.

Hoping to be able to attend - once I figure out how to get hooked up to the video chat (will search Tudiabetes for instructions on "how to do video chat"). Unless someone sees this post - and can explain it abit more :)

I won't be available for the live chat. (I hope you record it! :) ) I have one question for the authors: When will "Using Insulin" be updated? Thanks!
