National Diabetes Awareness Month - What To Expect From Us This November 

November 02, 2021

National Diabetes Awareness Month

ExpressionMed Diabetes Awareness Month Plans

National Diabetes Awareness Month has begun and if you're curious how ExpressionMed is participating this year, keep reading!

10% of revenue from select tapes will be donated to CDN:

We will be donating 10% of the proceeds from the sales of all diabetes themed tapes to the College Diabetes Network (CDN). The CDN is a 501c3 non-profit organization whose mission is singularly focused on providing young adults with T1D the peer connections they value, and expert resources they need to successfully manage the challenging transition to independence at college and beyond.

More ways to give back to the community:

ExpressionMed has built their largest Diabetes Awareness Month initiative yet. An NFT project called Diadragons

The art was built in collaboration with Emma from Type One Toucan and features many nods to the diabetic community. Pictured below: A zombie diadragon with a low reading, a unicorn, a cyborg holding a t-slim, and a representation of Frederick Banting holding the insulin patent for 1 dollar.

Diadragons NFT project by ExpressionMed
This project has 3 initiatives: 
  1. To raise money to give a year's supply of insulin and CGM supplies to as many people as possible.
  2. To spread awareness regarding what diabetes devices are and what living with it is like
  3. To catch and keep the attention of non-diabetics, involve them in discussions, and encourage their support. 

You can buy Diadragons here.

The full project description is available here, and you'll really love this 2-minute animation that provides a more fun, narrative description of the project's mission.
