Dana Lewis

Dana Lewis became a reluctant self-tracker at the age of 14 when she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Dana and her partner Scott Leibrand have been developing a DIY artificial pancreas that is built on top of the data flows from Dana’s continuous glucose monitor. In this talk, she describes the role that access to data plays in their DIY pancreas, with immediate and profoundly positive effects on her life. She also explains why she's constantly pushing for patients to stop waiting for solutions and go the DIY route.
