Thursday, November 5, 2020

ACTON, Mass. – Insulet Corp. has launched “YESvember,” a monthlong campaign to share inspiring stories of people living with diabetes on social media channels. The company is encouraging people to share how they are turning “no, I can’t” into “yes, I can.” “We understand the many obstacles faced by people with diabetes and those who care for them,” said Shacey Petrovic, president and CEO. “Our innovative technology makes it possible for people with diabetes to enjoy life’s many adventures and opportunities without limitations. We’re committed to bringing attention to the diabetes community and we’re proud to showcase these positive stories throughout November.” Insulet will also sponsor the annual JDRF 1 Walk, with a goal of logging 1.6 million miles to raise $50 million for its 50th anniversary, and will honor World Diabetes Day on Nov. 14 to recognize nurses and all they do to help in the prevention and management of diabetes.
