This week, legal rights and diabetes have come a long way – but as the technology changes, so have some of the challenges. What happens when a school refuses to use CGM technology? I’m talking to two attorneys this week who have actionable advice and the law on their side. The Dept of Justice has already ruled on this in one state, in a decision that has nationwide impact.

Bonnie Roswig is an attorney with the small non profit Center for Children’s Advocacy which focuses on addressing legal needs of vulnerable children.
Jonathan Chappell lives with type 1 and is a private practice lawyer in Connecticut.

They recently filed an administrative complaint with DOJ in the Eastern district of VA, with more to come. They’ve also created a template for families, on their own to download, complete, and file on their own: Here’s more information for parents

There’s also a Facebook group that is following this issue: https://www.facebook.com/groups/followt1ds
