Express Your Diabetes combines the artistic expression and creativity programs developed by Diabetes Hands Foundation: Drawing Diabetes, Diabetes Supplies Art and Word In Your Hand. This space also serves as a channel for DHF to partner with other groups and individuals raising diabetes awareness through art.
Share your works of creative visual expression in the "comments" section on this page, and in the programs below, as applicable. Then, on September 24th, use the pieces you have created to participate in Diabetes Art Day 2012.
