Guest Post: Jennifer Shine Dyer, EndoGoddess.
Today, Jennifer is guest posting about her medical app, EndoGoddess, and how people can support her efforts to improve health outcomes for people with diabetes.
The launch on July 11th has received a lot of media attention and a lot of investors are excited to see what happens. If the projects are successful, it will not only mean that the projects for the new technology get done but it may also mean that investors will likely invest more than they would have in these projects because they know that people with diabetes want them and will use them. It’s a win for everybody!!
That is why my project, the EndoGoddess Diabetes App (and the only one in the diabetes category currently), is so important. The EndoGoddess App is a self-entry glucose journal that not only keeps patients healthier, but also enables them to earn rewards for healthy behavior. As most diabetics know, checking their glucose four times a day and writing it down to give to their doctor and keep track of their sugar levels is a complete drag, but it is very important to avoid emergency trips to the ER or worse yet, hypoglycemic shock and the fainting spells it can cause, which can be extremely dangerous. Our Application not only automates this recording and communication process, it also lets patients earn rewards for their good sugar tracking. No more paper journals!
The project donation ends in late August so please consider donating before that, even just $1. You’re donating to a larger cause and to show that people with diabetes have a voice that should be heard!!!
You can find the EndoGoddess Diabetes App Project here (and you can also back the project, if you'd like).
