Embracing Type 1 Diabetes
Our project is intended to educate patients of Type 1 Diabetes about their disease. We want to explain what this disease is, how to deal with it, and how to live a healthy normal life with it. We want to provide patients with the information they need to know and will be answering common questions that patients and/or their parents ask about this disease. While much of this information is generally available, we will tailor our efforts to deal with the emotional trauma and fears experienced by young people who are newly diagnosed and their parents. Our plan is to make Type 1 Diabetes healthier in the Lehigh Valley. Hopefully, these people can grow up still healthy without many complications.
