Of Continuing Interest

  1. Come to the Pasadena 2002 conference and try a pump! Three pump companies, Animas, Disetronic, and Medtronic MiniMed, will be offering this great opportunity for potential would-be pumpers. Anyone interested in wearing a pump (with saline) may do so Thursday and Friday at the conference. A prescription from your physician is required and must include the wording "insulin pump trial with saline."
