Social network used to map diabetes

A research team at the Children’s Hospital in Boston will partner with a social network devoted to diabetes, with the aim of finding out how sharing personal data can help people with diabetes to manage their condition. A new feature rolled out by TuDiabetes, called TuAnalyze, will start the data donation drive.
TuDiabetes is aimed at all people with diabetes, whilst focusing on the fact that Hispanic Americans have a higher rate of diabetes, claimed Manny Hernandez of the Diabetes Hands Foundation.
Dr. Kenneth Mandl of CHB reportedly commented: “The project is about consumer engagement. It leverages these emerging technologies around online social networking and specifically looks at the communities that are arising organically.”
