Best Diabetes Art New category (Sept 2011)

Send your nominations to Then visit to see the “best” on October 1st. Remember, our goal is to find posts and bloggers that don’t get the attention they deserve so it is VERY important that we have nominations from across the diabetes community.


As a bonus this month, we have a great sponsor for the September Best of the ‘Betes Blogs.

PAK BARA began as a company designing a compact, lightweight, fashionable daily organizer. The mother of a child with diabetes found their product and a new connection was born. The organizer has a low-profile and comes with either a clip, arm band, or leg band so it is great for carrying your diabetes supplies during exercise. “Even before their official launch, PAK BARA served as an elite sponsor of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) in 2009 and 2010 to express their support for the diabetes community and long into the future.” (source)

PAK BARA designs

I met Karen, one of the co-founders, at Friends for Life 2011 and I can assure you that they are truly interested in helping the diabetes community. PAK BARA also has a partnership with GlucoBrands so the giveaway winners will receive GlucoBrands samples as well.

Since nominating is as important (if not MORE) than being chosen as one of the Best of the ‘Betes Blogs, PAK BARA will be providing their product to those who nominate and those who are featured in the October 1st post.

One winner will be chosen at random from among those who nominate and one will be chosen at random from among the posts that are featured.

Good luck everyone! Thank you for continuing to help us find the BEST!
