I work with brands and publications to bring the patient voice and perspective to their efforts.
Brands I’ve Worked With
- Ascensia Diabetes Care
- Bigfoot Biomedical
- Janssen-Johnson & Johnson
- WEGO Health
- Content creation
- Content review/editing
- Private product testing and review
- Public product review
- Patient Advisory Board participation (virtual and in-person)
- Paid studies and surveys
- Twitter chat participant
- Patient expert commentary (for media)
Through writing, reviewing, and editing content I help brands and publications to bring the patient voice and perspective to their communication efforts, and help people make informed decisions about their health and healthcare.
A few articles I’ve written for companies and publications:
- Diabetes Devices and Alarm Fatigue
It starts with a beep, a buzz, or a gentle shake. Something, related to your diabetes, needs your attention. The alarm is meant to be helpful. But is it?
- Life in the Time of COVID-19: Reflections on Pandemic Trauma
At first it looked small. But months later the COVID-19 pandemic has touched everyone. What will be its lingering effects?
- Air Travel with a CGM
Air travel with type 2 diabetes requires some special attention, especially if you are wearing a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) or some other medical device while flying.

Product Testing and Review
I beta and field test digital health devices and apps related to diabetes management, general health, and fitness. The feedback and reviews I provide are based on the day-to-day experience of a real life patient and focused on usability and usefulness.
Sample product reviews:
- Digital Health Product Review: mySugr and Accu-Chek Guide
How well to the mySugr app and the Accu-Check glucose meter work together?
- App Review: mySugr
I’ve used the mySugr app on and off for more than two years. An eternity when it comes to health apps. What makes it so sticky?
Patient Advisory Boards
I’ve served on a number of patient advisory boards. On some I provided the patient perspective in order to inform a companies outreach and product development efforts. On others I provided content for publication. And on yet others I helped design, recruit participants, and manage grant-funded studies.
