Easing the burden of diabetes management for parents and caregivers

It’s hard to imagine the cognitive load for a caregiver with a child who has Type 1 diabetes. There are hundreds of decisions to make each day and none of them trivial. Technological advances have gone a long way to helping, but more often than not, they only contribute to the overwhelming amount of information caregivers have to process. Is there a way in which we can use technology to ease that burden rather than add to it? In this episode we talk to Dan Korelitz about his journey as a parent to find a better way to manage his son’s diabetes.
