What do people say about participating in our diabetes research?

Luis

What was I thinking when I signed up? I'm just going to give it a shot. If it works out, it works out . . . . I definitely got a lot more than I expected.
— “Luis,” age 24

Estefania

I like that it's about how diabetes affects your life as a whole, not just about diabetes. You know? It's a disease that's not visible to people, so people can't understand what you're going through . . . it's not just how are you managing your diabetes, it's how it's affecting you as a whole individual person.
— “Estefania,” age 22

Ivionna

It's kind of a realization, like it's taking a step back, because you don't really think about what you do on a day-to-day basis. This can help you to look at what you're doing and how you can better improve yourself.
— “Ivionna,” age 29
