The Diabuddies presentation can truly be targeted at any age group, however most typically we present to groups from JK to grade 8.
The fee for the Diabuddies program is $200 per school. This can be made as a payment directly from the school, or fundraised through students and families. Some ideas for the fundraising option are, bake sale, toonie drive, or talent show.
Yes! We can present to the entire student body, or just the home room class – whatever works best for the school/student.
We would just require a projector and an HDMI cable.
We generally cover the following topics in the presentations:
Speaker introduces themselves
How do you get T1D?
Differentiate between type 1 and type 2
The role of nutrition/carbs
How to test blood sugar
What is insulin & how to give it
How classmates can be supportive and helpful
