In 2019, College Diabetes Network launched the CDN REACH
initiative to engage campus leadership in holistically supporting students with diabetes. In April 2020, CDN REACH is convening the first meeting of our coalition of diabetes and higher education experts. Two issues have been identified for group discussion, and we are seeking your feedback:
- Given new therapies
recently introduced to the market, create consensus regarding use of
Emergency Glucagon treatment in cases of severe hypoglycemia on campus, and accommodations associated.
- Given new
diabetes technology (e.g. CGMs and looping therapies) utilizing smartphones and other devices (e.g. watches and tablets), create
consensus regarding authorized use of smart devices both in class and
during exams, and accommodations associated.
Over the years, many students, parents, clinicians, and campus administrators have shared with CDN their concerns about these two issues. Following our April meeting, it is our hope to publish consensus guidelines for university personnel on how to address these topics.
We welcome your feedback as members of the diabetes and/or higher ed communities on these issues. Please use this form to submit comments on either or both issues by end of day on Monday, February 17th.
CDN retains permission to use any comments submitted, in full or in part, in materials related to this initiative. If you would like your comments to remain anonymous, please indicate so at the bottom of this form.
