Are you living with type 2 diabetes? Are you caring for a family member or friend living with type 2 diabetes?
If so, Health For America would like to hear your story! The 2015-2016 Fellows are partnering with MedStar Health in Washington, DC to create a solution for people living with type 2 diabetes. By working with doctors, caregivers, designers, entrepreneurs, and people who are actually living with type 2 diabetes, our team is working toward a solution that leads to happier, healthier lives.
We see people living with type 2 diabetes as our partners in this process, which is why we’re looking to learn from anyone living with type 2 diabetes or caring for someone with the condition. If you are a person living with type 2 diabetes, please consider sharing your story with us! You certainly won't be asked to share anything you're not comfortable sharing, but we would love to have a conversation about questions like:
How do you manage your diabetes in your daily life?
When do you feel most successful in managing your diabetes? When do you feel most challenged?
What would you change about your diabetes care if you could?
What positive things has diabetes brought to your life?
If you are a person caring for someone living with type 2 diabetes, we would love to connect with you and have a conversation about questions like:
What kind of care do you provide on a daily, weekly, and yearly basis?
What are the easiest parts of providing care? What are the most challenging?
What kinds of support do you rely on or wish you had?
If you or anyone you know might be interested in joining the conversation and sharing your type 2 diabetes story with us, please reach out to our team. You can reach us at 202-899-7986 or at email@example.com.
