We’ve all been waiting for the new batch of hybrid closed-loop insulin delivery systems to be approved and released to the marketplace. The Covid-19 pandemic delayed so many trials and studies and slowed down the processes in the FDA, as folks working in the diabetes devices departments were diverted to critical virus research. We are getting close to the new release dates! Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing some great podcasts on Diabetes Connections with Stacey Simms and Juicebox Podcast and Arden’s Day with Scott Benner, both of who do great interviews with the top folks at the diabetes tech companies that we are watching.
