Of Continuing Interest
- The Fall Fundraising Drive continues. Our goal is to raise $20,000 to help ensure the continued operation of the world's largest independent diabetes web site. As of October 24, 1999, our Fall Fundraising Drive has raised $7,045. Please visit our secure on-line store to make a membership donation or purchase one of our shirts, hats, or our diabetes book. Thanks to everyone who has responded to our call for support.
- Parents, please use our Schools Database to record the blood glucose testing policy for your child's school. Advocates for in-class testing can use this database to show the administration of their schools that kids do test in the classroom.
