Of the more than 1.25 million Americans living with Type 1 diabetes, about 200,000 are less than 20 years old. Type 1 diabetes, unlike Type 2, has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle and there is nothing that can be done to prevent it. Type 1 requires constant care, management, and support, yet many families and youth living with Type 1 diabetes are met with barriers in accessing health care programs, educational resources, and support groups. At DiPi, we are partnering with families and providers at the PADRE (Pediatric Adolescent Diabetes Research and Education) Foundation, a community-oriented nonprofit in Orange County, CA. Our goal is to create tools that engage, educate, and empower families to help better manage Type 1 and the hurdles that come with it. In doing so, we hope to create awareness, connect families, encourage questions, help build trust, and work toward empowering the Type 1 community in schools, health care spaces, and at home.
