What we do...
Diabetes information is available almost everywhere. It can be overwhelming and difficult to decide what's relative to you and what doesn't apply. Gigi was born out of the need for people to find these answers, without drowning in the sea of internet searches. We are not here to replace the expertise of doctors and specialists; we are here to aid their reach, by creating conversational experiences for Diabetic patients and caregivers.
