Members of the Nightscout Foundation and development team will be hosting three sessions during Friends for Life Orlando 2016.
CGM in the Cloud: Tomorrow's Solutions Today
10:45 am - 12:00 pm in Canary 3
Please join us for an introductory overview of the fastest-growing T1D Facebook community and T1D technology group in the world. There are many ways to get your CGM in the cloud and enable remote monitoring--whether you need to monitor a child at school or simply want the convenience of viewing CGM data on a smart watch. Thanks to dedicated volunteer developers and engineers around the world, the CGM in the Cloud group has created custom, no-cost solutions for PWD and caregivers of PWD. Explore the options (including Open Source and industry tools) and find out which solutions will work for you (and your family) and how to get started. Come hear about the power of “Paying It Forward” and how the needs of one can become a solution for tens of thousands across the globe. Join us for an enjoyable session where you will see people helping people take back a portion of what was lost at diagnosis and find out why #WeAreNotWaiting.
A Day in the Loop with Nightscout
1:30 - 2:45 pm in Canary 3
Managing T1D requires 24/7 awareness and monitoring. Thankfully, no-cost and easy-to-use technology solutions can help streamline your day and minimize the impact of T1D on daily life. Whether you are a PWD or a caregiver of a PWD, this session will give you an overview of Open Source tools that are already available to keep you in the loop until you are ready to close the loop. Learn about CarePortal, a cutting-edge solution that simplifies T1D record keeping and helps keep everyone that needs to know in the know while your child is away at school or daycare. CarePortal provides an easy, no-cost, no-risk open loop solution that can simplify life with T1D for everyone involved. We will also give an overview and demonstration of the next-generation project OpenAPS (as seen in the Wall Street Journal) and how it is helping families around the world close the loop because #WeAreNotWaiting.
Nightscout Installation Workshop
3:15 - 4:30 pm in Canary 3
When it comes to getting your CGM in the cloud, there isn't a one-size-fits-all solution! There are many ways you can enable remote monitoring of blood glucose levels, and sorting through the options can be confusing. We can help! Please join us for one-on-one consultations to find out which solution is right for you. Whether the best approach for you is an off-the-shelf solution from the industry, an Open Source solution from the #WeAreNotWaiting community, or a combination that lets you enjoy a full spectrum of features, we can help you get started with a solution that fits your life and your lifestyle. During this workshop, those wishing to take advantage of Nightscout features (including CarePortal) can get expert assistance setting up. Bringing a laptop to the workshop is recommended.
