Over the last two years, the girls have been involved in a collaboration with Dr. Joyce Lee, Pediatric Endocrinology at the University of Michigan, Mott Children's Hospital. You can read more about the project known as the Diabetes Emoticon App HERE and HERE.
As a result, the girls will be heading to represent young patients at Peds2040.org. You can read more about that HERE.
Now for the really exciting part... the girls have an opportunity to appear on a mock Shark Tank through the conference that is entitled Innovation Beach.
If you didn't have a chance to see their video, you can check it out HERE.
For the first time, the youngest patients have the ability to have their voices here. Thanks in part to wonderful, creative and talented adults like Dr. Lee that recognize that great ideas can come from anyone - no matter how old.
That concept is truly inspiring.
