Liz Sacco, CEO, Diabetic Dabs, Middleton MA

Dabs® are a disposable, inexpensive, convenient, breakthrough for blood glucose testing.  The inspiration came from being a mother of a child living with diabetes and instilling a healthy habit into his testing routine. When her child tested his blood, he would wipe the excess blood from his finger on his clothes or the inside of his case.  Diabetic Dabs solves this problem and brings value to all those who live with diabetes.
