The American Diabetes Association is hosting a Safe at School workshop for parents of children with diabetes, at the University of Florida on Sunday, August 21. Parents will learn about their child’s rights at school, and how they can be a partner with their schools and their child’s advocate.

Keeping Your Child Safe at School with Diabetes

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.

  • Does your child have a Diabetes Medical Management Plan and 504 Plan?
  • Are there trained staff who can give insulin and glucagon at school and at school activities if your child requires assistance?
  • Is your child allowed to do his or her own blood glucose checks and then treat in class?

Sunday, August 21

3:00 – 5:00 p.m.
