Back to Home What's New for 19 May 2002

Of Continuing Interest

  1. Come to the Pasadena 2002 conference and try a pump! All four pump companies -- Animas, Disetronic, Medtronic MiniMed, and SOOIL -- 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."

  2. Come see how insulin pumps are produced and meet the friendly faces behind the Medtronic MiniMed products! Medtronic MiniMed is pleased to offer a tour of their nearby facilities to the first 150 conference participants to sign up for this opportunity. Two tours will be offered on Wednesday, July 17th, at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Medtronic MiniMed will provide transportation between the Sheraton Pasadena and their facility. Families are welcome! Children, including teens, must be accompanied by an adult. If you are interested in participating, please contact Kyndra Gregg at (818) 576-4420 or via email at
