Diabetes Art Day is organized and facilitated by Lee Ann Thill, diabetes advocate and art therapist. She started Diabetes Art Day in 2010 to encourage individuals and families with diabetes to engage in creative visual expression to communicate their experience with diabetes, connect with others, raise awareness, and promote insight and positive coping skills. Having lived with type 1 diabetes since 1978, Lee Ann is dedicated to raising awareness about diabetes-related mental health issues, and advocating for improved mental health services.
