As parents get ready to send their kids back to school this fall, those whose children have diabetes have more than book bags and school supplies to get organized: It’s time to review and plan for how their children’s diabetes management needs will be met while they are at school.
That’s why the American Diabetes Association’s Safe at School campaign is dedicated to making sure that all children with diabetes are medically safe at school and have the same educational opportunities as their peers.
On Tuesday, August 11, from 1 to 2 p.m. ET, the Association will hold a special Twitter chat about resources and information on how to care for a student with diabetes. Our special guest Crystal Jackson, Director for Safe at School, will answer and tweet your questions live!
