'Inspired by Diabetes' U.S. National Contest Winners Reveal Unique Challenges but Common Resolve in the Face of Diabetes
Date:10/21/2009

INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As any 16-year-old can attest, high school can be filled with difficult challenges, both social and academic. Whether it's finding a date to the prom or filling out college applications, stress can be high and worries endless. But for 16-year-old sophomore and Gate City, Va., native Dalton Clark, a challenge beyond his imagination emerged in early 2008. Dalton was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and suddenly, typical high school hurdles paled in comparison.

Dalton is one of two U.S. national grand-prize winners of the Inspired by Diabetes Creative Expression Competition announced today by Lilly USA, LLC and the American Diabetes Association (ADA). The winners were honored at a celebration in June hosted by Lilly during the Association's 69th Annual Scientific Sessions in New Orleans.

The Inspired by Diabetes Creative Expression competition (inspiredbydiabetes.com) encourages all people touched by diabetes to share their stories through visual and written creative expressions such as essays, poems, art and photography. Inspired by Diabetes is a global collaboration between Lilly, the International Diabetes Federation's (IDF) Unite for Diabetes initiative, and the International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD). The ADA serves as the Inspired by Diabetes national advocate in the U.S.

Dalton entered the contest in the "child category, written expression," and his personal account with diabetes offered compelling insight into the life of a teenager with the disease. For Dalton, diabetes has meant that he must pay more attention to his health and diet than most people his age. When asked to offer advice for the recently diagnosed, he said, "I would encourage them to learn as much as possible about their condition because with proper control, diabetes should not limit what you can accomplish."
