Hannah holds a degree in mechanical engineering from Northwestern University.<br /> <br /> Jerry the Bear<br /> <br /> Sproutel is the creator of interactive learning games for children with a chronic illness. Their first creation, Jerry the Bear, is a best friend for children diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Jerry the Bear is not an ordinary teddy bear, but an interactive learning tool. Using the principles of game based learning and Empathetic Robotics, children care for Jerry by monitoring his blood glucose levels, "feeding" him a proper diet and "administering" insulin when needed through various sensors on his body. Since Jerry's condition mirrors their own, learning from Jerry takes the fear out of the affliction, while also teaching the child how to manage their own condition.<br /> <br /> Jerry the Bear comes pre-loaded with a game in which the objective is to help him train for the Olympics. This creates a fun goal that children can strive toward, entirely independent from the skills that they have to learn. Since users are reaching a goal, they are encouraged to learn from their mistakes so that they can succeed within the game. The game is further constructed to unfold like a story -- creating engagement and immersion in the goal of helping Jerry win the Olympics. .@US_FDA Open Public Hearing Talk about AFREZZA, April 1 tag:www.tudiabetes.org,2014-04-06:583967:Video:3368243 2014-04-06T14:56:06.089Z Manny Hernandez http://www.tudiabetes.org/profile/askmanny <a href="http://www.tudiabetes.org/video/us-fda-open-public-hearing-talk-about-afrezza-april-1"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/OmzXdzxeBqzsQQzZgY3s4Zn5UfiTaurZSbtd0EpLMWge0JGwTJ-y*spJVnK2c7MOlskFaAjOtsx2O8DZtctzq6-x3aUPJgGK/1061246328.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Delivered via Webcast on April 1, 2014<br></br> By Manny Hernandez, President of Diabetes Hands Foundation <a href="http://diabeteshandsfoundation.org">http://diabeteshandsfoundation.org</a><br></br> <br></br> ----<br></br> Transcript of the video:<br></br> ** Mannkind is not a funder of Diabetes Hands Foundation **<br></br> <br></br> My name is Manny Hernandez.

I am 41 years old and I have been on insulin for over a decade.<br /> <br /> In that period of time the methods to deliver insulin have improved significantly. Still a NEEDLE is ultimately involved to give people with diabetes their doses of this life-saving liquid.<br /> <br /> It was daunting for me to start injecting insulin, having known life without shots for three decades. As a person with type 1 diabetes, insulin was not an option for me. Still today, 10,000 shots later, and after inserting 1,000 infusion sets in my body, insulin shots continue to be something I accept only because I need them to stay alive.<br /> <br /> Yet so many people LIVE with insulin resistance (both physiologically AND psychologically). This leads to millions people with type 2 diabetes not being on insulin when it has been scientifically established how much it could improve their diabetes management.<br /> <br /> I head the Diabetes Hands Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to connecting and mobilizing the diabetes community for positive change. We run two social networks with more than 60 thousands members (half in English, half in Spanish). Since we started our work 7 years ago, I've read the stories of thousands of people living with type 2 diabetes, who are frightened to start on shots. Yet they all want to do better: they don't want to let sustained high blood sugars get in the way of their long term well being.<br /> <br /> Here are a few comments from some of them, in English and in Spanish:<br /> * "I think this product has the ability to change the world. If this product can make lowering blood glucose levels even ever so slightly easier for<br /> [millions of people out there with wildly out of control diabetes...] maybe it would save their lives."<br /> <a href="http://www.tudiabetes.org/xn/detail/583967:Comment:3349573">http://www.tudiabetes.org/xn/detail/583967:Comment:3349573</a> (Sam)<br /> <br /> * "Me parece increíble que después de 31 años de estar inyectándome cuatro y hasta cinco veces al día llegue el milagroso día que deje de hacerlo...."<br /> (It seems incredible that after 31 years of getting shots 4-5 times per day, the day will finally come when I can stop doing it...)<br /> <a href="http://www.estudiabetes.org/xn/detail/906848:Comment:1336993">http://www.estudiabetes.org/xn/detail/906848:Comment:1336993</a> (Maria Belen)<br /> <br /> * "As a T2, I can see even dumping my pump entirely for this as a solution."<br /> <a href="http://www.tudiabetes.org/xn/detail/583967:Comment:3350246">http://www.tudiabetes.org/xn/detail/583967:Comment:3350246</a> (David)<br /> I should add that a very important number of them, as they anticipate this new type of insulin were also concerned about its cost and affordability.<br /> <br /> Today you have the opportunity to help MILLIONS of people with type 2 terrified of insulin shots. With an approval of this inhaled insulin their physicians can prescribe a solution where needles will no longer stand in the way between them and optimal health with diabetes with improved quality of life.<br /> <br /> Thank you!
