Who we are. What we do
dQ&A, for diabetes Questions and Answers, is a San Francisco-based market research company focused exclusively on diabetes. Our mission is to be a voice for those whose lives are touched by diabetes, and a sounding board for those who are developing better therapies and tools for managing it.
The patient perspective
We conduct regular surveys of the dQ&A Patient Panel, an active group of people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes who are willing to provide ongoing feedback to diabetes companies, be they market leaders in pharmaceuticals and medical technology or start-ups working on new therapeutic directions. We also carry out one-time surveys, typically focused on providing the patient perspective on new concepts for diabetes care.
The diabetes educator viewpoint
We interview diabetes educators on a regular basis, for a complementary perspective on the issues we discuss with people who have diabetes. Members of the dQ&A Diabetes Educator Panel provide feedback to us in two surveys per year.
