That is where the Diabetes Alliance of Northwest Ohio comes in. The leaders in regional diabetes care already do an excellent job at what they do. The key contributors are almost all independent, and what we need is a common ground. Diabetes can be relentless, involving multiple health issues and all areas of patients' lives. By working together, playing to each others' strengths, and sharing resources, we can make a hard problem much easier. Technology is key. When patients used to live in relative isolation with their diabetes, they can now collect their own data and easily share it with caregivers. Caregivers used to toil alone, but we can now easily share information, coordinate, and prevent needless duplications and conflicts. The Diabetes Alliance seeks to serve this need. Explore this site, and use the resources you will find. This is the new world of beating an old problem.
