A Resource for College-Age Students with Diabetes

March 7th, 2011 by mike Leave a reply »

If you have patients with diabetes that are in college and are looking for a supportive social network, Students With Diabetes might be a good resource.

Students With Diabetes is a group devoted to understanding the challenges facing college students living with diabetes. Members of these campus-based groups strategize ways to meet those challenges and succeed both in the classroom and in their diabetes management.

The dream of this organization began with the diagnosis of a college student in 1993. That student, Nicole Johnson, was told at diagnosis to drop out of school, give up on her career dreams, and live a predictable life. Today, Nicole is the executive director of Bringing Science Home, the organization that created Students With Diabetes.
