If you’re an adult with Type 2 diabetes between the ages of 18 and 40, then researchers want to hear from you.

Investigators at the University of Florida want to learn more about stress and coping in people with Type 2. They are seeking participants to respond to a roughly 20-minute online survey chronicling their experiences living with diabetes, including how they cope with the condition and how it has affected their lives.
