Diabetes resource made available


SHARING TOOLS   | Email Print RSS
BETHESDA, Md. — Increased incidence of diabetes in children has prompted the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) to release a new resource for school personnel.

“Helping the Student with Diabetes Succeed: A Guide for School Personnel” educates school personnel, including bus drivers, about diabetes management and helps ensure a supportive environment.

The guide includes a diabetes primer and glossary that provide a basic understanding of the disease. There are tools and resources for implementing a team approach to diabetes management, sample diabetes medical management forms and emergency action plans for the student’s health-care providers to submit essential information to the school health team.

This booklet can be downloaded from the NDEP Website at www.ndep.nih.gov/diabetes/youth/youth.htm, or it can be ordered by calling (800) 438-5383. All NDEP materials may be reproduced and distributed without copyright restrictions.
