USF med students get taste of life with diabetes

Posted on February 20, 2013 by The Patterson Foundation

Thanks to a challenge from Bringing Science Home, medical students at USF got to experience firsthand what life is like living with diabetes.

The students, who are part of USF's SELECT program, a leadership program for health care students, carried blood sugar monitors for 24 hours, checked their blood sugar and even responded to text messages about their diabetes while keeping a journal about the experience.

The exercise was designed to help these promising medical students develop emotional intelligence skills and leadership potential.
