Welcome to John Hinshaw's Personal Page
Covid-19 and Diabetes
People with diabetes are no more likely to contract Covid-19 than anyone else in the general population. But people with diabetes are more likely to experience serious complications. The ADA has an informative web page here: https://www.diabetes.org/diabetes/treatment-care/planning-sick-days/coronavirus . As we move through and, hopefully sooner than later move beyond the current crisis, the need to find a cure and to manage diabetes in the meantime will not abate. If anything it will increase. So please consider making a donation now to support the efforts of ADA.
Tour de Cure 2020
Thanks to everyone who donated in past years — you have taken it over the $4,000 mark! I started by contributing to my goal, because I committed to ride and raise money in this inspirational event. Some 29 million people in the United States have diabetes, and because I personally know some of them i want to do something about it. You can too, just by donating. It would mean the world to me. Last year's ride was a blast! The organizers did an excellent job with the course, the start/finish, and support along the way.
For 2020 I have again formed a company team, "Fortive Gives Back" in order to increase the impact of your support. Let's look forward to 2020's ride, run, and walk on July 25th by supporting my ride and my team's efforts. No better time than now to support me in celebrating 28 years of continuous progress working to improve the lives of people with diabetes through research, advocacy and education.

I am forever grateful for your support. Together we can Stop Diabetes!
