What is Insulin Pumpers?

History and official status of Insulin Pumpers, and how you may support its work

Insulin Pumpers was formed in September 1997 by Michael Robinton as a voluntary organisation providing a support forum on the internet for pump users. His daughter had recently started using a pump. It is now handled by a team of 50 volunteer writers, web developers, mail administrators, chat organizers and medical advisory board members.

Insulin Pumpers runs 3 websites (www.insulin-pumpers.org, www.insulin-pumpers.ca and www.insulin-pumpers.org.uk) with extensive information for the US, Canada and the UK, and 6 discussion groups in 3 languages, with over 5000 members from around the world. In January 1999 Insulin Pumpers established itself as a charity. It has no affinity with any one pump company. Funding for the organisation comes from voluntary contributions from members, and from companies. A list of donors is available on our donors page.
