Hey anyone near the San Bernardino are? Newly diagnosed type 1 and looking to make a bunch of type 1 friends.
Figure if I'm surrounded around an environment where everyone is doing what I'm doing it will be easier to live with type 1.

Trotta Associates is conducting a market research study in Northridge, CA. They are looking for adults with type 1 or type 2 diabetes for a non-clinical usability study to evaluate several insulin pumps. Qualified participants will receive a $125 check for participating in a 2-hour interview.

This study will take place between 8/13 – 8/26 by appointment in Northridge, CA. There will be no drug injections to you or anyone else; however, you will be asked to handle syringes with needles and a placebo.

If you are interested, please fill out this survey and they will call you if you meet their initial criteria:
OR call them to see if you qualify: 310-306-6866 x70

Disclosure: Trotta Associates will pay Diabetes Hands Foundation a referral fee for each person referred through this status update, who qualifies and participates in the study.

Novo Nordisk, a world leader in diabetes care, announced today that it has awarded $80,000 in sponsorships to four San Francisco community organizations. The San Francisco sponsorships are part of the nationwide Novo Nordisk Community Care initiative to help rally communities to address the diabetes crisis and support local programs designed to make an impact for people living with type 2 diabetes. According to data commissioned by Novo Nordisk from the Institute of Alternative Futures, as of 2010, San Francisco had more than 433,000 people with diagnosed and undiagnosed diabetes and an additional 1.1 million people in danger of developing diabetes.

You might be talking about a couple of different meet ups. One's a JDRF thing at Hoag down on Newport, another is an insulin pump group (Although non-Pumpers go too) in Santa Ana CA. The attendees are around fifty five & up. Haven't been there in a while, I can't drive due to eye damage from premature birth and the Santa Ana on is hard for me to get to.

I'm in Costa Mesa

Hello everyone,

New member, based in OC. Just wanted to say hello to the local "gang". Any meetups in the Orange County area? After digging around on-line, I thought I found one at a local hospital that meets once a month. Anyway, hope all is well.
