Hey all,

I was just contacted by a research group here in the Bay Area about a study they're recruiting for right now.  The compensation for participants is great, and apparently the interview only takes an hour.  Check it out:

The Henne Group , a small medical research company in San Francisco, is looking for people who are living with Diabetic Kidney Disease to do  in-person interviews in different cities across the US, starting this week in the San Francisco Bay Area. Participants will receive $100 as a thank you incentive to compensate for their time and effort. And Diabetes Hands Foundation will also receive a $100 donation from the research group, for helping to find participants.  No attempt will be made to sell anything or influence people’s thinking, and all participation is confidential. 


If you are interested, call Elizabeth at 415-348-2986 or 877.737.5782 x 286.


Or take this online screener to see if you qualify.

I just had my baby toe amputed last Friday due to infected ulcer and I would like to talk to other people who had their toes amputed.

Following on to Katie's great idea, don't forget JDRF's happy hour THURSDAY, Feb 9 at 6pm at ThirstyBear (661 Howard St) in San Francisco! We are meeting in the bar area. All young professional Type 1s and their guests who can tolerate Type 1-discussions are welcome!

Hey T1s!!!
Whether you were diagnosed back in the day when it was "Juvenile Diabetes;" you are a newly diagnosed college freshman; or you were diagnosed well into your second career, the reality is that 85% of those living with type 1 diabetes are over 18!
Without diabetes camps, it's hard to meet other adults living with T1D with whom you can share information, ask questions, and get support.
That's why Beer & Basals is for You!
Beer & Basals is a casual gathering for adults with T1D who want to get to know others living with T1D and expand their circle of support. Beer & Basals will be hosted by Carb DM volunteers Breanne Harris and Katie Craft.
Our first meeting is coming up on Monday, February 27, 7 - 9 pm. Join us at Crepevine in Palo Alto (367 University Ave)! Hope to see you there!
