Of Continuing Interest
- Assistance with Access to Insulin.
- Diabetes Patients' New Challenge, filmed at Friends for Life Orlando 2018, describes non-medical switching, where an insurer has pushed them to change insulin, pumps, meters or other medical necessities.
- No child should die for lack of insulin. Just $1 a day will ensure a child has access to the life-saving insulin they need to survive. 1,000 donors will help 1,000 young people in need.
- Has your insurance company forced you to change your insulin or other diabetes care medicine or product? That's "Forced Non-Medical Switching." Share your story of forced non-medical switching at MyMedsMyChoice, a project of CWD.
- CWD will be taking over responsibility for scholarships to its Friends for Life conferences.
