Type 1@School – Seminole County Public Schools

Type 1@School is a Dancing for Diabetes community awareness program in which the DFD team provides Central Florida public and private schools with the tools and training they need in order to help their Type 1 students thrive. DFD provides the opportunity for school personnel to learn from experts and specialists and gain hands-on experience with the life-sustaining devices their Type 1 students use daily so they can better understand the realities of living with Type 1 Diabetes, its signs and symptoms, and best practices for keeping Type 1 students safe at school.

We recently presented a Type 1 Diabetes trainng segment to all Seminole County Public Schools Transportation personnel – helping all of the district’s bus drivers and monitors have a better understanding of their students with T1D and keeping them safe on the school bus.
