My name is Meg Foord and I am a Year Twelve student at Mary Mackillop College in Adelaide, South Australia. I am currently in the process of completing my ‘Research Project’ which is a compulsory subject under the SACE (South Aust Cert of Ed) guidelines requiring students to formulate a question of interest and utilize various avenues of research to collate information regarding the chosen topic. My research question is “How can we effectively help young people with Type 1 Diabetes deal with their diagnosis and the misconceptions society has surrounding the disease?”. For my outcome I hope to formulate a book for young adult sufferers of this disease. I came upon this question as at 12 I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and found there was little support regarding the topic. Attached are two links to some surveys I have formulated, one is for parents and one for people with Type One Diabetes themselves, I would greatly appreciate it , if these links with some explanation could be added to your forum page (by me or you) and other avenues of reaching people you may have to help me formulate some first hand answers to my question?

Thank-you for your continued help and support to the Type 1 Diabetic community,

Meg Foord
