Excited About Tandem Diabetes! #shareholder

I invested in Tandem Diabetes a while back, they had just caught my attention (type 2 diabetic at age 40 that will likely be type 1 in the next few years) because they had this really sleek touchscreen interface that just seemed to fit right alongside all of the other sparkly gadgets (iPhones, iPads, Kindle, etc.) that are such a huge part of our lives today –like some sort of fashion accessory, except functional… very functional.
