We have a new time for our live airing, but listening to the archive remains the same. In this episode of Rents we discuss staying safe at school and also Dexcom G4 v G5.
As promised, here are some of the links we referred to:
“Many Schools Failing on Type 1 Diabetes Care” – The New York Times
In our ensuing discussion of this article we refer to this fabulous resource which I think every family with a student with type 1 diabetes should have: Helping the Student with Diabetes Succeed.
We also recommend (highly recommend) utilizing the ADA’s Safe at School section for any questions you may have. This site is robust with information and resources including sample 504 plans.
Crystal Jackson joined us in Episode 19 to discuss the Safe at School program in detail – you can listen here.
Please give us your feedback! We want to hear about your experiences with schools and whether you are apprehensive about upgrading to G5 or dove in head first. What topics would you like to hear in future shows? Let us know. Comment below or find us on Facebook and Twitter – here and here.
Oh and our two “bits,” not non-diabetes related:
