Strips & Needles – A Day in the Life: opening reception
To celebrate the opening of the exhibit, Strips and Needles—A Day in the Life, the University of Arizona Health Sciences Library will hold an opening reception with Michael Lee Zirulnik, exhibit artist, type 1 diabetic, and Research Instructor at the University of Arizona, College of Medicine Phoenix, Department of Bioethics & Medical Humanism.
The exhibit offers an intimate glimpse into the daily rituals of one person living with diabetes. Nearly half of all people in the U.S. experience direct, adverse impacts of diabetes. The project directly benefits patients and families living with diabetes, health care providers, and the general public. Building community, raising awareness, and humanizing the patient are a few impacts that translate into long-term, lasting impacts, particularly within the health care community.
