Diabetes Education for Nursing Students

A class of student nurses has an assignment to talk with a child who has been diagnosed with diabetes. The student will contact you by email to ask you or your parent some age-appopriate questions, such as when you were diagnosed, what treatment is required, how the diagnosis has affected your family, and other insights that you or your family may have. Here's your chance to help nursing students better understand what it's like to live with diabetes.

Thank you for helping us learn more about diabetes!

To Help

Fill out this form to send your contact information to Teri Helton RN, MSN, instructor for the class of student nurses. Please be sure it's ok with your parents to participate. You may be contacted soon after the school semester begins in August. Due to the great response to this project from children in the past, not everyone may be contacted. Your prompt response to the student's email would be appreciated. If you are unable to respond to the student's request for information, please do not sign up.
