About the exhibit 
Strips & Needles—A Day in the Life 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.

The exhibit is on display through February 28, 2022, in the Health Sciences Library, Room 2101, 1501 N. Campbell Ave. in Tucson. Library hours for the public are Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm.
