Jason Adams is a molecular biologist by training and business development executive for Roche Diagnostics. After setting up Nightscout for his T1D daughter, Jason founded the CGM in the Cloud Facebook group for members to share their experiences with open source solutions to send CGM data to the cloud. He lives in Carlsbad, CA with his wife and their three daughters.
Gail deVore was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 1972. She has pumped since 1985 and used a CGM since 2003. She serves on the Board of Directors of the Nightscout Foundation, in addition to serving on boards of other non-profit organizations. She owns a website design company, is a professional bluegrass musician, and an avid tennis player. She and her husband share four adult children and six grandchildren.
As an early embracer of the Nightscout technology, Dan Miller began remote monitoring of his then 12 year old daughter at the FFL conference two years ago after hearing about it from another D-Mom. A self-proclaimed tech-geek, he has been in the electronics industry since the early 1970s and through his day job as a field engineer and troubleshooter / facilitator for a major electronics company, Dan understands all too well some of the pitfalls encountered when adopting any new technology and thoroughly enjoys helping as many as possible with this paradigm changing platform.
Weston Nordgren II is a Director & Community Advocate at the Nightscout Foundation. Father of five and grandfather of three, Weston has teamed up with his wife of 30 years to advocate for the Nightscout Project and Open Source solutions that help alleviate the suffering of those struggling with type 1 diabetes. With the T1D diagnosis of their son seven years ago at 12 months of age, it became very apparent that the tools available for the care of those suffering from T1D were insufficient. Weston and his wife have made it their focus in life to passionately advocate for real life solutions found in the #WeAreNotWaiting community.
Rachel Sandlain volunteers in Nightscout Tech Support in the CGM in the Cloud community. Rachel is a university student with a variety of interests including diabetes technology and closing the loop, supporting friends and family, especially in relation to diabetes, and helping others set up with Nightscout. She was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age nine.
James Wedding is the President of the Board of Directors of the Nightscout Foundation, a non-profit seeking to deliver open-source tools to live a life less impacted by type 1 diabetes. In February of 2011, James' daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and he began searching for technology solutions to the challenges ahead. Years later, discovering a quickly growing community of patients and caregivers that have given up on the industry and on the FDA, James has become part of a worldwide movement to free health care from the current rules. A rallying cry of #WeAreNotWaiting has catalyzed over 10,000 to adopt an open-source solution for a portion of type 1 diabetes care, and has spurred new conversations across the entire industry.
