I GOT THIS, created by UC Berkeley’s The Lawrence Hall of Science, is an interactive, first-person, educational story that follows a young teenage girl who discovers that she has type 2 diabetes, one of the fastest growing diseases in the US and around the world. Told in a real-world setting, I GOT THIS focuses on the causes, symptoms, prevention, and social aspects of the life-changing disease. I GOT THIS was created with funding from the National Institutes of Health, in collaboration with the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, and using advice from curriculum developers at the Hall and Tufts University.

Ratings and Reviews
I wish the game offered more options and free will to choose what to eat and do. I like the concept a bit it’s more to type 2 diabetes than just eating the right things. Hormones, genetics, and environmental factors play a huge role as well. Overall, it’s descent.
I want to be a doctor when I grow up so this is a good app!
I just found this app and I have to say it was the coolest thing ever! I want to be a nurse in the future, so stuff like this always piques my interest. It also taught me a thing or two about diabetes. I’m so glad you guys made this! :)
