Mission-T1DSeptember 8 2014

Sanofi Diabetes has launched an app to improve awareness of type 1 diabetes among children with the condition.

The New Mission T1D game app features educational messages adapted for primary school-age children.

Players make their way through a number of levels by earning points and each level provides short, practical and illustrated messages on living with T1D at school. The game also includes a number of educational videos to reinforce key topics.

“It aims to support a serious message through gaming and play to encourage children with T1D (and their family, teachers and friends) to learn more about how to live with diabetes,” says Sanofi.

“The entire educational pack (game, videos and quiz), when used in a classroom setting, is also a useful toolkit for teachers, creating an understanding of diabetes that can easily be included into the curriculum. The desired outcome is for children with T1D to feel more supported and understood.”

The app is free and is available for iOS, android and PC devices.
