About DiapointME

Diapoint was created by Pamela Durant, the mother of a child who was diagnosed with Type1 Diabetes at 20-months old. She left a successful corporate career in 2016 to start Diapoint – the place for people touched by diabetes.

As she learned her way around the management of diabetes as a caretaker, it did not take long to understand the challenges, gaps and stigma that her son and others with diabetes face daily - both on a personal level and from a care perspective. This inspired her to create Diapoint, which provides diabetes education, coaching services, a diabetes network, advocacy and products via an online platform to support people living with diabetes as well as coaching education for healthcare providers who support people with diabetes.
