New collaboration leverages Joslin's deep clinical and research expertise and dLife's community and lifestyle approach to managing diabetes.

BOSTON, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- 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.

"Joslin.org is centered around educating people with diabetes and their families and providing up-to-date information on diabetes treatment and research," said Jeffrey Bright, Director of Communications at Joslin. "Partnering with dLife.com will enable us to offer visitors to Joslin.org easy access to a wide variety of excellent online diabetes resources."

The two organizations believe Joslin's deep clinical and research expertise and dLife's vast online social communities can bring more accessible and credible information about diabetes to people with the condition, as well as their caregivers.

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.

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.
