The "Diabetes 101" seminar was created to improve the knowledge
base, responsiveness and comfort level of care providers who
regularly care for youth with diabetes.
Clinical instructors will provide an overview of diabetes,
touching on management routines, management away from home, meal
planning, hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, insulin drawing and
injection, and insulin pump technology.

"Helping a child manage their diabetes requires knowledge,
motivation and hard work ... and can seem overwhelming for
caregivers with little or no experience," says seminar organizer
Jennifer DiPasquale, R.D., L.D. "Parents, relatives, guardians, day
care and camp providers, coaches, teachers, and teacher aides are
encouraged to take advantage of this free seminar."
Attendees should call 732-2161, ext. 75199, by Monday to
register. Lunch is included in the seminar agenda.
