Students with Diabetes at UF

Are you a UF student with diabetes? Are you struggling to find your niche on campus or find a way to enjoy all these wonderful college experiences without jeopardizing your health? Students with Diabetes (SWD) is a fun, educational and interactive group developed just for you! The SWD program provides entertaining and interactive education related to diabetes, and the monthly meetings provide students with the tools and information they need to successfully enjoy their college experience while managing their diabetes in a healthy way.

The program helps students embrace new ways to manage their health and interact with healthcare professionals that have devoted their lives to improving the lives of those with diabetes. At each monthly meeting students meet with others with diabetes, listen and possibly share experiences, see and try new equipment, and probably make some new friends. There are new topics of discussion at each meeting, some of which have been blood glucose monitoring, exercise, carb counting, and stress management. New members receive A1c testing at their first meeting.
