Caregivers are vital to the American healthcare system.


Unfortunately, they are often overlooked by insurance providers. Premera Blue Cross wanted to change this, and asked us to find a way to help their caregivers.


Drop-In was inspired by our research into the needs of newly-diagnosed type 2 diabetes patients.


Type 2 Diabetes is one of the most prevalent and expensive diseases in Washington and Alaska, where Premera provides coverage.

Everyone can benefit from daily exercise, but for type 2 diabetes patients, it is integral to successful treatment.
