Diabetic College Student Needs Viewers for Film Contest

William Conlin, age 21 and a diabetic, is a film student at Santa Barbara City College. Since he was diagnosed at age 14, Conlin has struggled with his diabetes. Earlier this year, he began wearing an Omnipod insulin pump, and it has changed his life.

Omnipod has opened a video contest titled “How The Omnipod Has Changed My Life,” exclusively for Omnipod wearers.

The contest is judged on three merits, one being views/hits. Conlin, who has created a three-minute piece, needs a viewership of thousands to be competitive.

The prize for the contest is a MacBook Pro laptop (with filmmaking software), which he needs for his college classes at SOMA-SBCC.

Click here to view Conlin’s film on YouTube (the designated platform for the contest) and give it a five-star rating.

For more information, call 805.964.7612.

Gary and Harlene Conlin are the parents of William Conlin.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
