Design Workshop

Student Name Gillian McCarthy
PhD Project Designing medical technology to facilitate adolescents' self-management of type 1 diabetes
Method Design Workshop

While we often carry out research with people managing medical conditions to help us understand their needs, we also include them in the design process. Here, adolescents with type 1 diabetes and designers worked together, rapidly sketching and prototyping ideas for blood glucose meters that combatted stigma, and negative attention.
