Of Continuing Interest
- Real-time chat rooms are now available, made possible by a generous donation from ichat, maker of ROOMS, the leading real-time chat server.
- Note to parents who completed the school survey:
Thanks to all of you and your overwhelming support of my thesis project--a handbook for parents of school-age children with diabetes. Your contributions made my work possible. I think we all learned from eachother, and hopefully the handbook will help those still struggling with problems with diabetes management in the schools. My handbook is being reviewed for medical and legal accuracy and then will be made available for your review in January. Please feel free to email me as some of you had asked questions but neglected to give me your email address.
