As a follow-up to last week’s post about the special Strip Safely edition of Diabetes Art Day, here is my artistic interpretation of relying on inaccurate test strips:
Please visit the Diabetes Art Day: Strip Safely Gallery to view all the submissions. It’s not too late to participate either, and your experience with inaccurate test strips matters. Please consider making a piece of art that captures something about your experience using inaccurate test strips, and submit to the gallery. Images will be used in the coming weeks as representatives from the DOC behind the Strip Safely initiative work to convey the importance of this issue to policymakers in Washington, D.C. The more art we have, the better we can communicate that this is not just a science issue – it’s a personal issue for all of us who rely on test strip technology to make decisions that affect our immediate and future health outcomes. Get creative and join the Strip Safely advocacy effort!
