Father of five and grandfather of three, Weston has teamed up with his wife of 32 years to advocate for the Nightscout Project and Open Source solutions that help alleviate the suffering of those struggling with type 1 diabetes. With the T1D diagnosis of their son nine years ago at 12 months of age, it became very apparent that the tools available for the care of those suffering from T1D were insufficient.

Years later, discovering a quickly growing community of patients and caregivers that have given up on the industry and on the FDA, James has become part of a worldwide movement to free health care from the current rules. A rallying cry of #WeAreNotWaiting has catalyzed over 23,000 to adopt an open-source solution for a portion of type 1 diabetes care, and has spurred new conversations across the entire industry.
