Now THIS is what we call #PatientsIncluded. Twenty patient leaders will be fully funded to attend a new “MasterLab Leadership Institute” in the San Francisco bay area March 31-April 2. Click here (or the graphic above) to learn more and apply by next Wednesday, Feb 15.

(They’ve been promoting it for weeks – this post is a late addition.)

From their event flyer:

MasterLab Leadership Institute is Seeking:

  • Passionate, driven leaders in the early stages of a project to improve life with diabetes.
  • Non-profits, small businesses, social enterprises, grassroots projects, or anything in between.
  • Applicants and projects that represent the diversity of the diabetes community: Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes, POC, LGBTQIA+, & international friends encouraged to apply.


  • 20 accepted Fellows accepted into the 2017 cohort will be given a fully-funded scholarship, and flown to the San Francisco Bay Area for an intensive weekend (March 31-April 2).
  • Fellows will attend hands-on workshops led by innovation experts, entrepreneurs, and non-profit leaders.
  • Fellows will learn how to refine their organizational model, use the lean startup method, sharpen their leadership toolkit, find sustainable funding, and increase their social impact.
