If You are interested in finding out what you might do in your state…..join us tomorrow (12 noon Eastern Time—link is below) and learn how you may save the life of those with the missed diagnosis of diabetes.

Ask An Expert: Tom Karlya – How to ROCK State Diabetes Advocacy
Why we’re excited.
Tom knows that advocacy happens when people act and where they act. He will share the heartbreak that drove the creation of Reagan’s Rule and how we can honor the children who have been lost to a lack of a timely diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes by working with our state legislatures.
Children with Type 1 diabetes are being missed; their symptoms are dismissed as flu/virus initially; causing extended hospital stays, enormous loss of workdays, incredible family hardship and in some instances, severe brain damage and death in children needlessly.
