Introducing a new voice in diabetes management
An estimated 27.5 million people live with type 2 diabetes in the United States. Thanks to greater awareness and better treatments, many who have been diagnosed with the disease are living longer, healthier lives. But diabetes requires changes and considerations that permeate throughout every aspect of life. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and isolated on the path to self-management, especially for people who are newly diagnosed.
Amazon voice-enabled solutions have the potential to be a new partner for this journey. As voice technology transforms the way we live, could it shift from helping manage playlists to helping manage disease?
The Alexa Diabetes Challenge invites you to be among the first to explore how voice-enabled solutions and the ecosystem of supporting cloud technologies provided by Amazon Web Services can improve the experience of those newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.More about the challenge
