- Parent Workshop
October 15, 2018
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Wouldn’t it be nice if every teacher and administrator intimately knew T1D and would know just what to do? If every other parent could watch out for your child and give you tips and strategies that led to their success? If your kids had their peers normalizing blood tests and their role models did too?
Welcome to our workshop! We aim to bring you into a connected space of peers and advocates for a few hours, that will bring you confidence and support as we each do our best to help our T1D kids in schools thrive.
Our Kids in School Program is a collaboration with Campaign Chair and outspoken Advocate for T1 students and parents, Lisa Geelen. Lisa recently led a committee of Health Care Practitioners and major diabetes organizations, who took on provincial policy and ensured that diabetes care plans were included.
Topics of discussion include advocating for your T1D child in school, implementation of PPM 161, and the roadmap to independence in school.
When: Monday, October 15, 2018 6-8pm
