Announcing our next Workshop! #MakeHealth: App Design by Teens for Teens @ JDRF Teen Central - May 14
We are thrilled to take part in the JDRF Teen Central Program at the 9th Annual TypeOneNation Summit on May 14, 2016 at Wayne County Community College District-Western Campus in Belleville, MI. The 90 minute workshop, #MakeHealth: App Design by Teens for Teens led by Dr. Joyce Lee and Professor Nancy Benovich Gilby will take teens through the human-centered design process to create creative and useful app prototypes.
Admission is FREE to all persons affected by type 1 diabetes, their care providers (family and friends), and the medical care community. A continental breakfast and boxed lunch is provided. Registration is REQUIRED!
We are seeking volunteers to help facilitate the teen workshop led by HealthDesignBy.Us. Volunteers do not need to have a direct relationship to diabetes, just a willingness to help others create and inspire! Volunteers will be needed from 10am-12:30pm.
For more details, please e-mail Ashley Garrity, email@example.com.

We Need Your Help!
HealthDesignBy.Us and the Mott Pediatric Endocrinology Clinic are partnering with GameStart, a local startup in Ann Arbor to develop a gaming platform to teach the principles of how to manage diabetes for kids that are newly diagnosed at Mott Children's Hospital. If you are a school-aged kid or a parent of a school-aged kid with type 1 diabetes, please reach out to us via e-mail. The more patients and caregivers who can give us feedback, the better we can make the platform! Sign up for our mailing list!
