BOSTON – January 26, 2010 – joslin.org, the Internet site for Harvard-affiliated Joslin Diabetes Center, the world’s preeminent diabetes research and clinical care organization, and dLife.com, the leading online community for people living with diabetes, today announced a new online partnership. dLife will host a resource page on its web site featuring the clinical and research information from Joslin. Joslin will host on its website food and cooking videos from dLife’s award-winning TV show dLifeTV as well as links to relevant information on dLife.com.

New Joslin information on the dLife website will include links to joslin.org, as well as segments about Joslin that have appeared on dLifeTV, information about how to donate to Joslin’s High Hopes Fund, how to volunteer for research and clinical trials at Joslin, and a link to the Joslin store, which offers various patient and professional education publications.  Similarly, the dLife page on Joslin.org will link to the dLife site and will include links to dLife information, and the dLifeTV schedule.  Joslin has already started hosting the popular, dLife-produced multimedia story about Joslin’s founder, Dr. Elliott P. Joslin.

“Partnering with Joslin, a leader in diabetes care, education and research allows us to help people who use the dLife site to obtain deeper diabetes insight and knowledge,” said Gregg Zegras, COO, at dLife. “Together, we look forward to helping more people with diabetes live stronger and healthier lives.”
