Taking Diabetes Back to School – Tips for School Nurses

Going back to school can be difficult for kids, parents and school nurses – especially when the child has diabetes. This program is designed to give school nurses updated knowledge about the treatment of diabetes in the school setting. You will have an opportunity to meet with other school nurses, have hands on practice with some of the technology used in managing diabetes and ask questions of the staff at the CHaD diabetes program.
