I can’t even describe how inspired I feel today (I’ve been up since 4:30am so it may partially be exhaustion, but I do feel excited). While my brain and my heart settle a bit… here’s a pic of me last night (microphone not working and video without sound). I definitely think I was a bit stiff and far away, my chit-chat was the most boring part of the evening, but who cares…. BECAUSE…..
THIS IS WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT!
Dr. Aaron Kowalski.
I got to sit next to him and afterward, bombard him with questions. If my pancreas could smile, believe me, it would have.
More information on all of this later! And here’s some additional info about Dr. Kowalski:
Dr. Kowalski, JDRF’s Vice President, Artificial Pancreas Project. He is an internationally recognized expert in the area of diabetes technologies, and oversees JDRF-funded research aimed at accelerating the delivery and development of the artificial pancreas systems. He has authored numerous articles in the field, including co-authoring the landmark study in The New England Journal of Medicine that revealed the effectiveness of continuous glucose monitors in T1D.
Dr. Kowalski’s brother Stephen was diagnosed with type 1 in 1977 diabetes and in 1984, Dr. Kowalski was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
