Step into the shoes of Emily

“I Got This,” created by UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science, is an interactive, first-person, educational story that follows a young teenage girl who discovers that she has type 2 diabetes, one of the fastest growing diseases in the US and around the world. Told in a real-world setting, “I Got This” focuses on the symptoms, remediation, and social aspects of the life-changing disease. “I Got This” was created with funding from the National Institutes of Health, in collaboration with advice from the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital and curriculum developers at the Hall and Tufts University. This free app is available for iPhones, iPads, and Android devices.
