Of Continuing Interest
- Children with Diabetes exhibited at the 25th Annual Meeting and Educational Program of the American Association of Diabetes Educators. It was nice to hear first-hand the compliments of nurses, dietitians, and many other health professionals who knew us already, and to share our thoughts and dreams with them.
From our exhibit, we were able to share the website with hundreds of diabetes educators from around the world and handed out thousands of our web site address cards and our new brochures. Our cards and brochures are free to anyone who needs them.
In the next few weeks, we hope to welcome many new kids and parents to our website, as well as many diabetes educators who first learned of Children with Diabetes at the meeting! We'll also be posting information about new products we found while walking the show floor.
- With kids getting ready to head back to school, parents will want to review Diabetes at School for the School Bill of Rights for Children with Diabetes and the Information for Teachers and Child-Care Providers. Please feel free to print out anything and everything to give to your child's teacher.
- Kids who attend diabetes camp are encouraged to write about their experiences. We'll publish stories, photos, and drawings. See How to Contribute for instructions on sending in your stories.
