Diabetes Health TV

Live from the ADA Convention 2006

Nov 1, 2006

This month in our Meters and Pumps & Infusion Sets sections we are doing something a little different. Diabetes Health is launching Diabetes Health TV from our homepage (www.diabeteshealth.com).

This multimedia video content will give Diabetes Health readers access to the latest products being introduced into the marketplace as well as the latest research information in the diabetes industry. With manufacturer demonstrations and top researchers discussing the latest news in the diabetes world, Diabetes Health readers will now have convenient access to information that affects them, from the comfort and privacy of their own homes.

Check out Diabetes Health TV for yourself—it’s like a virtual trade show. All Diabetes Health videos are optimized for a high-speed connection. You will need to have the Adobe Flash 7 player installed in order to view the streaming videos (link on DHTV). You will have full access to play, pause and watch the videos over again if you like.

While attending the American Diabetes Association Scientific Sessions this past June in Washington, D.C., Scott King, editor in chief of Diabetes Health, had a chance to catch up with several diabetes professionals and researchers. Below are summaries of a couple of the videos that specifically demonstrate new meters that are on the market. These demonstrations will give you an idea of what these products do.
