Podcast 97: A Snarky Comment Helps Lessen the T1D Burden | Jutta Haaramo


I’m a sucker for witty banter and was thrilled to connect with Jutta Haaramo, co-founder of the Happy Bob app, who has brought a bit of lightheartedness to managing her son’s life with T1D. Her mission is to share the latest diabetes data, without overloading people with information by making it a fun, and rewarding experience. This is just the beginning of an exciting partnership with Jutta and the Happy Bob app team.

BIO:

Jutta Haaramo, Happy Bob Founder and T1D Mom. Six years ago Jutta’s oldest son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.  With the overload of diabetes data, Jutta started to think about how the real-time diabetes data could be turned into intuitive, fun experiences that would help in keeping glucose more stable. Together with a small team they built Happy Bob, a diabetes app combining gamification and humor that is used by thousands of people with diabetes every day.
