Beaumont Children’s is committed to improving the lives of children
with Type 1 diabetes. As part of this commitment, the Beaumont pediatric endocrinology team is pleased to offer a collection of Type 1 diabetes resources for parents and non-medical personnel in schools.
It takes a team to provide a safe and healthy school environment for students with Type 1 diabetes. We all need to help. Parents, school personnel, doctors and nurses need to work together.
We encourage parents of children with Type 1 diabetes to discuss plans for their children’s care with the principal or 504 building coordinator at the school.
