Strips & Needles—A Day in the Life 

This exhibit responds to a staggering reality—nearly half of all people in the U.S. experience direct, adverse impacts of diabetes. The project benefits patients and families living with diabetes, health care providers and the general public. Building community, raising awareness and humanizing the patient are but a few impacts that translate into long-term, lasting impacts, particularly within the health care community. Take a virtual tour.
