Things to consider this weekend.

Just finished up a great visit with my endocrinologist this morning. More about that next week. In the meantime, in case you didn’t hear about these, here are a few things for you to mull over this weekend:

I’m headed to Bethesda, Maryland (okay, North Bethesda, Maryland) on Saturday for the 2013 JDRF Type 1 Diabetes Summit. Lots of Artificial Pancreas and Islet Cell talk, and a chance to commune with other Type 1ers. I’ll try to write about what I find out next week. If you see me there, I hope you’ll stop me and say hello. It would be my pleasure to meet you. More information about the summit is available at
The Medicine X Conference is scheduled to take place on the campus of Stanford University September 27, 28, and 29. Courtesy of Christopher Snider, notice that MedX is taking submissions for ePatient scholarships to attend the conference. Find out about it at

Man, that’s a long web address.
Finally, I found this little tidbit in my inbox from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration:

FDA wants you to be a part of a new working group “that is geographically diverse and consists of experts and interested persons from all stakeholders in the HIT (Health Information Technology) community to help develop the required strategy and recommendations.”

If you would like to nominate someone or even yourself to serve on this new working group, please visit and complete the application by March 8th, 2013.

That’s today, folks. Hurry. And enjoy your weekend!
