Strength In Numbers Hackathon: Using a novel technology-focused brainstorming activity to engage stakeholders in intervention developmentYoung adulthood has been identified as a particularly challenging time to live with and manage a chronic condition, like type 1 Diabetes (McKnight, Wild, Lamb, Cooper, Jones, Davis et al., 2015; Wiebe, Helgeson, & Berg, 2016).
