Remember being asked that question? Ugh, annoying.
But, there's more to this question than meets the eye, especially when a child takes daily medication for chronic illness. It prompted me to think,
"How could taking medication be a positive experience?"
"Should parents give their children responsibility in taking their own medication?"
The final product is edi, an IOT device designed to help adolescents manage, and remember to take, their daily medication.
