Re: [IPk] Serious idea, need feedback

Nathan and Steven,
I thoroughly support your ideas.
There is a definate need to spread information about pump therapy and give
advice from successful pumpers to  the medical community , new pumpers and
to diabetics using injections .
Please feel free to call Ray and I to discuss the role that the companies
should play and how we can support you with your project.
