Program Description:

TuDiabetes (in English) and EsTuDiabetes (in Spanish), are social networks for people touched by diabetes and were established in 2007. TuDiabetes and EsTuDiabetes have more than 45,000 registered members and are visited by well over 200,000 people per month.   Since May 2010, Diabetes Hands Foundation has partnered with Children's Hospital Boston to develop TuAnalyze (in English) and EsTuAnalisis (in Spanish), two diabetes data collection, mapping, and surveying applications. Members of the online communities submit their Hemoglobin A1Cdata, and the aggregate data and displays the results on maps. The project's goal is to rapidly survey and better understand populations of people with diabetes through data donations. A research paper detailing the first lessons learned in connection with TuAnalyze was published in thePublic Library of Science in 2011, and many other survey results have been published by the Boston research team.

Program Description:

The Big Blue Test is that raises awareness of the importance of exercise for people with diabetes. The program takes place leading up to World Diabetes Day (November 14).   It reinforces the importance of exercise in managing diabetes by having participants test their blood sugar, get active, test again, and share the results online at bigbluetest.org.  The results typically show how exercise reduces blood sugar levels for both people with diabetes and people without diabetes. For each Big Blue Test submitted, a donation to a diabetes charity has been made to help people with diabetes in need of supplies and/or education. More than 30,000 Big Blue Test entries have been received since 2009. As a consequence, $250,000 have been awarded in the form of Big Blue Test grants.
