Safe at School
Our Safe at School Campaign works to make sure that the diabetes management needs of students are met so they are healthy and safe when they are at school, and all school sponsored activities. By working as a team, families, health care providers, and school staff can make this a reality.
Younger and newly diagnosed students depend on school staff to monitor blood sugar and administer insulin. Others need support as they self-manage. And all students need trained school staff who can recognize and treat high and low blood glucose and administer emergency glucagon.
