Diabetemoji now available in a Sticker keyboard for iMessage! Express yourself and discuss health with a language of emoji for diabetes-related communication!
Diabetemojis were created through a HealthDesignBy.Us workshop event for kids with T1D. HealthDesignBy.Us (www.healthdesignby.us) is a collaborative of patients and caregivers, healthcare providers and researchers, designers and artists, engineers and technologists, public health professionals, and community members who are passionate about patient-centered participatory design and infusing the maker movement into healthcare.
Ideas for the icons were developed by teen type 1 diabetes experts Reece and Olivia Ohmer and their caregiver Amy Ohmer. U-M Stamps School of Art & Design students created the illustrations (Margot Robert) and user interface mock-ups (Xiaoying He), and students from Michigan Hackers created the applications (Jawad Nasser and Connor Krupp). Jacob Dwyer (U-M Stamps Alumnus) revised and created icons for version 2.0 of the app and Logan Light contributed code for version 2.0. Product Strategy was provided by Joyce Lee, MD, MPH (http://www.doctorasdesigner.com/), Nancy Benovich Gilby, Emily Hirschfeld, and Ashley Garrity.
