ExpressionMed Celebrates Diabetes Awareness Month with NFT


MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – What do dragons, NFTs, and medical gangs have in common? They all work together to improve the lives of people with diabetes.

ExpressionMed, which has been making designed medical tapes for over six years, is launching its largest awareness campaign to date. they launch Diadragon NFT to raise money for life-saving diabetes supplies, create educational content from YouTube to TikTok, and donate 10% of profits from diabetes-themed tapes to the College Diabetes Network.

Diadragons is an NFT collection project started by ExpressionMed CEO Meghan Sharkus that features art, built in collaboration with Emma from Type One Toucan.

The two commercial competitors have come together to create collectible art, which is available for purchase at www.diadragons.com. This art features one-of-a-kind dragons that represent pieces of the diabetes community. The owners of Diadragon not only support an amazing cause, but also have access to a health-focused community and weekly prizes.

The main objective of the project is to raise funds for “Life Drops”, a donation of funds to pay for one year of insulin and CGM supplies. Anyone who owns a Diadragon is eligible to win, and they can donate the funds to themselves (if they are insulin dependent), a friend or family member, or donate them to Insulin For Life USA. , where it will be used to transport insulin to developing countries and disaster relief areas.

It is one of the first NFT projects to disburse funds directly to individuals.

“We aim to change the way charitable giving works in diabetes,” said Meghan Sharkus, CEO of ExpressionMed. “Right now there is a significant flow of funds for advocacy and research. While these are important, they do not address the current insulin affordability crisis. “

“On average, people with diabetes pay a third of their income for the supplies they need to stay alive. We hope that by donating directly to these families, we can inspire other projects to do the same, creating a better balance between solving the issues at hand and donating to longer term initiatives. ”

This unique approach to NFT is focused on supporting the diabetic community in a new form of giving back that is currently inaccessible to government and other nonprofit support programs.

You can join the Diadragon community on Discord or follow @Diadragons on Twitter to participate and learn more about the project.

ExpressionMed will distribute Diadragon stickers to raise awareness among local businesses and through collaborations with College Diabetes Network, NickiChicki, Senita Athletics, The Petite Nurse NP and more. Each sticker features an insulin dependent dragon and a QR code indicating how people can learn, support and take action on behalf of Diabetes Awareness Month. Digital versions of the sticker are also available for distribution at www.diadragons.com/cause.

In addition, ExpressionMed has added three new diabetes awareness templates to its collection of ribbons and stickers. These can be worn by both diabetics and non-diabetics to spark conversation around the disease, and they make great gifts to show support for loved ones with diabetes.

Finally, 10% of November revenue from ExpressionMed’s diabetes-related bands will be donated to the College Diabetes Network (CDN). CDN helps young adults with type 1 diabetes find the peer relationships and resources they need as they transition to college and beyond. Donations will be distributed to the young adults they serve.
