Back to school

FALL 2017

Fellow Pumpers,

This time of year many are getting ready for the new school year. Children with diabetes face many challenges as they ready themselves for school. We have a great resource on our website's homepage entitled Your Child with Diabetes:

diabetesdepot.org/your-child-with-diabetes.

Within this resource you’ll find a number of useful references as we enter the back-to-school season. These include a Letter of Agreement for Schools and Parents, Communication and Education Checklist, Kids with Diabetes Information Card, Hypoglycemia Treatment Poster and Kids with Diabetes in Your Care Resource Booklet.

A couple of products that may be useful for the back-to-school season are featured in this newsletter.

From all of us at diabetesdepot.ca
