Education

Only 1/3rd of Americans with type 1 diabetes are achieving target blood glucose control. Despite improved insulin, technology, and understanding of diabetes, blood glucose is worse than a decade ago. Data has shown that lower A1Cs are achieved with more experience (years living with T1D) and income (better access to insulin, technology, and education through specialized care).

Clearly the current education status quo isn’t meeting the needs of a majority of the population with T1D. The Beta Cell Foundation is committed to increasing the accessibility and quality of T1D education through free apps and online courses that are:

  1. Free
  2. Explained in clear terms
  3. Designed by people living with T1D
