Safe at School Diabetes Campaign 2012
American Diabetes Association’s Safe at School campaign
The American Diabetes Association’s Safe at School campaign aims to get rid of fears like these and protect these children. The Association works with schools, families and health care providers to ensure all children with diabetes are medically safe at school and have the same educational opportunities as their classmates. This includes training a small group of school staff on how to handle diabetes care, such as insulin and glucagon administration, and to also make sure staff understand the impact diabetes can have on a child’s health and ability to learn. Safe at School also works hard to ensure that children capable of managing their diabetes can do so in the classroom or anywhere in the school setting.
