Looking to better understand T1D in teens

My name is Crystal, and I am currently a Masters Student from Stanbridge University in the Occupational Therapy program. I am teamed up with a few other students in a research thesis group. Our goal is to gain a better understanding of what living with T1D is like as an adolescent. It is in our interest to broaden the scope of occupational therapy in the community of Type 1 diabetes. With that said, we are reaching out to you today in hopes of acquiring participants for our study “A Needs Assessment for Adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes”, in order to identify social media use and preferences for diabetes education. This survey has been approved by the IRB (ethics board) of Stanbridge University. I was wondering if you would be able to share this blurb and encourage those ages 12-17 living with Type 1 diabetes to complete our short survey. Below is the link to the survey and my contact information.

We would be most grateful for your help.

Thank you,


The following is a link to our survey https://www.esurveycreator.com/s/1cd3d33.

Please email crystal.cartier@my.stanbridge.edu if you have any questions. The survey will be closed on 12/01/2018.

This sounds great. I would love to have more contact with occupational therapists. I will fill out the survey for sure.
