Pennsylvanians, Please Act for Kids with Diabetes in School

 Hello my fellow Pennsylvanians. I know that sounds like the opening to a  political stump speech.

I hope this is more of a response to one.

Now is the time write our elected officials. Once again legislation is pending that would allow schools, parents and adult volunteers in schools to help kids with diabetes. Specifically in the administration of diabetes medications, insulin and glucagon. Yes in PA we need this law because as it stands now it is not legal for a school nurse to delegate giving glucagon.

ADA has a super easy fill in the form and customize letter generating process that we can use to share with our legislators.

Put in some details about your family and why safe at school matters.

Maybe if we act now our ligislators will too.
