Insulet Applauds Employee for Bronze Medal Performance in World Blind Sailing Championships
Date:4/28/2009

Jason Wallenstein Honored by Massachusetts Legislature

BEDFORD, Mass., April 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Insulet Corporation employee, Jason Wallenstein, doesn't let his visual impairment or his diabetes keep him from sailing on a world-class level. Wallenstein and his SailBlind team members from the Carroll Center for the Blind in Newton, MA won the bronze medal in the B3 Division at the 2009 Blind Sailing World Championship Regatta in New Zealand.

Wallenstein and the SailBlind team were recognized today by both the Massachusetts Senate and the House of Representatives, led by Senator Cynthia Stone Creem and Representative Ruth B.

"I have been sailing all my life. There was no reason why having Type 1 diabetes and becoming visually impaired later in life would hinder my desire to excel in the sport and compete," said Wallenstein. "I am truly honored to be recognized today by Senator Creem and Representative Balser. I hope that my experiences will demonstrate to others that life's challenges can be turned into opportunities."

Wallenstein works in the product customer service department of Insulet, the leader in tubing-free insulin pump technology with its OmniPod(R) Insulin Management System. "Thanks to the OmniPod, I was able to focus on competing, rather than my diabetes," continued Wallenstein. "As part of the OmniPod product support team, I know firsthand that it is durable enough to withstand the rigors of a world-class sailing competition."

"Jason exemplifies Insulet's mission to make diabetes a smaller part of life. We are inspir
