After my blog post last week on Symplur about the impact and influence of #hcsm, I sent Dana a few questions for a follow up interview. Sure, it doesn’t match the breadth and depth of a podcast, or a podcast, or a podcast, and there sadly was no mention of cupcakes, but it’s still a good read.
Dana Lewis returns to the podcast to talk about wedding planning, her Do It Yourself Pancreas System, its evolution into an artificial pancreas, and the technological possibilities for people with diabetes in the coming years. Enjoy.
This week I catch up with Dana Lewis to talk about running half marathons in Seattle, her evolving role at Swedish Medical Center, and the continued growth and impact of her weekly #hcsm Twitter chats. Most importantly, Dana breaks down the Do It Yourself Pancreas System, why the concepts applied to this technology can apply to any person with diabetes, and why the FDA is extremely curious in this project. It is worth nothing throughout this conversation, that neither Dana nor I are medical professionals and we aren’t making any treatment recommendations for anyone, regardless of how cool all of this stuff is. Enjoy!
