Your Michigan T1D Resource
A "one-stop-shop" for resources and social support for Michigan parents of children with type 1 diabetes.
The stories from the T1D families we have met through our research inspired the collaboration between the MyT1DHero team and WKAR to produce videos that aim to spread awareness about type 1 diabetes.
MyT1DHero is jointly designed for adolescents ages 10-15 with T1D and their parents. The goal of the app is to aid adolescents in transitioning to independently managing their health, encouraging self-sufficiency while maintaining an open line of communication with parents. The hope is that encouraging more positive communication between children and parents will help improve children’s health and reduce stress for their parents.
