Basically, the procedure is designed to treat the root cause of the disease by resurfacing the damaged lining of the upper intestine (duodenum). The goal is to reset the hormone regulation and improve glucose control with the potential to make type 2 diabetes a treatable digestive disease instead of a lifelong, chronic struggle.<br /> <br /> Dr. Harith Rajagopalan is Co-founder and CEO of Fractyl, having started the company while serving as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at General Catalyst Partners. Prior to founding Fractyl, Harith was an academic cardiologist and physician-scientist. He received his B.S. in Chemistry from Stanford University and went on to obtain M.D. and Ph.D. degrees from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. At Johns Hopkins, Harith did groundbreaking and award-winning research on intestinal cancers that was published in top medical journals, including Nature and Science. After medical school, Harith trained in internal medicine and clinical cardiology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and completed a research fellowship at Harvard Medical School.

She received a Master’s degree in International Development and Humanitarian Emergencies at the London School of Economics and Political Science which led her to found <a href="http://www.t1international.com">www.t1international.com</a> in 2013. T1International aims to raise awareness about the challenges of life with Type 1 diabetes in resource-poor settings around the globe and advocates for adequate access to insulin, diabetes supplies, medical care and education for all people living with Type 1 diabetes, no matter where they live. Elizabeth has worked with diabetes organizations around the world and is currently collaborating with The Pendsey Trust on a World Diabetes Campaign at <a href="http://www.insulin4all.tumblr.com">www.insulin4all.tumblr.com</a>. The aim of the campaign is to ''Put the WORLD back in #WDD2014'' because oftentimes the rest of the world gets forgotten when it comes to diabetes. WDD should be a day where we especially focus on everyone worldwide with diabetes because life with diabetes is complicated. Access to vital insulin, diabetes supplies and medical care should not be.<br /> <br /> Cynthia Zuber has lived with Type 1 diabetes for 27 years, being diagnosed in 6th grade. A few months shy of her 25th year living with diabetes, Cynthia felt called to start a blog. Diabetes Light: My holistic journey to health began as a way to share how a holistic lifestyle and real food nutrition has helped her live with greater health in body, mind and spirit. Her writing quickly evolved into advocacy by courageously sharing the depths of her experience, the raw and sometimes painful reality of someone living with multiple chronic health conditions in addition to Type 1. Cynthia carries this same level of advocacy into her freelance writing for Diabetic Lifestyle, an online healthcare publisher. She believes sharing the truth of her experience not only helps others feel less alone but helps move us closer to a cure. Cynthia also cycles in the ADA Tour de Cure. 2015 will be her 5th year participating and 3rd year having her own team, The Light Riders. Three years ago she created an initiative for November's Diabetes Awareness month. D-Quotes encourages members of her Facebook blog community to share their voice as individuals living with or impacted by diabetes. Each day of the month, an awareness-raising quote and photo of the contributor are shared on Diabetes Light's Facebook page. TuDiabetes Make Your Own 'Betes!!!

Why? That is the very question that transformed Michael’s passion for science and questioning everyday things into an online phenomenon amassing more than 7.7 million subscribers on YouTube®.<br /> <br /> Michael is the mastermind behind Vsauce – a wildly popular YouTube® channel with more than 14 million video views per month. The educational channel addresses scientific oddities in a simple, yet compelling and digestible way for his viewers to understand. He is the conceiver, creator, and host of more than 300 videos, including “What Color Is a Mirror?” and “Is Your Red the Same As My Red?”.<br /> <br /> Leveraging the public’s desire for cool, interesting facts has resulted in more than 660 million video views on the Vsauce channel, making it one of the most subscribed channels on YouTube®. Vsauce was recognized as one of the fastest growing YouTube® channels in 2012. Additionally, Michael’s innovation and wit was recognized in 2014 with a Webby People's Voice Award for best news and information.<br /> <br /> In addition to his accolades and immense fan base, Michael’s videos have been featured on several well-known news sites, such as the Huffington Post, CBS, and Gizmodo. Michael also works as an in-house consultant for Google to help other video content creators achieve similar success. He holds a degree in neuropsychology and English literature from the University of Chicago.<br /> <br /> He recently teamed up with Novo Nordisk, a world leader in diabetes care, to develop a video series called “Breaking Down Diabetes.” He was initially drawn to the partnership when he learned that more than 29 million Americans have diabetes, but only 21 million are actually diagnosed. The six-part video series, which covers topics such as “Signs and Symptoms of Diabetes” and “Diabetes by the Numbers,” captures Michael’s infectious and energetic personality as he explains diabetes in a compelling and simple manner to help viewers better understand the importance of incorporating diabetes care into their daily lives.
