It’s time for back to school with T1D. Do you know your child’s rights and how to best talk to school staff? We have an in depth conversation with Crystal Woodward, Director of the American Diabetes Association’s Safe at School program. 

Crystal talks about daycare, preschool and elementary schools. She knows her stuff – in addition to heading up the ADA’s program, Crystal’s daughter was diagnosed as an infant and is now an ICU nurse.

Plus, a ready to use glucagon pen goes to the FDA.. what would the first room temperature-stable liquid glucagon mean for us? Find out about Xeris’s product and the unique way they filed for approval.
