Last night, I came across this great infographic from the Get Diabetes Right Facebook page. Very timely during this back to school season, for both K-12 and higher education.
As an educator — a librarian at a public university — and a newly diagnosed Type 1 diabetic, I feel compelled to share this with fellow educators.
Teachers, professors, librarians, teaching assistants… keep these points in mind. Hopefully, your students (or their parents, if they are younger students) will tell you they are a Type 1 diabetic, but many may not. Watch for these symptoms and behaviors. Understand.
