Town Hall Meeting–Back to School in a COVD-19 World

I’m so excited to share this with you. This is not a meeting on wearing masks or not wearing masks; it is not about whether you should home school your child or not; it is about knowing that different states, as well as school districts, have different protocols. It’s about working within the guidelines of what is available and where to go for help. And one of the things I am most proud of, with this town hall meeting (made up of panelists who are true professionals who care so much), is we will include the psyche-social aspect; the anxiety, the signs, what to look for, what steps to take, in this crucial part of your child’s care as they head back to school.

If you read my columns, you have heard me speak of the late and wonderful Dr. Richard Rubin…….a leader that taught me that the psyche-social aspect is as important as the managements tools our child uses in their world of diabetes. As we were planning this, his voice was loud and clear in my head that we needed to include this at this meeting.

What a cool idea. I always think that T1 parents are the heroes of our community, but also that they are far and in a way more interactive than almost any other parent community I come across. In my years of school administration, I dealt with T1 parents as a group many times, but not a single other disease had the interactions.

I am not saying that other parents love their kids less, but the T1 parents tend to act in concert as opposed to individually. Things like this is one of the reasons.

First, thanks for putting this together. I am wondering if this will be recorded? I have to work that evening and would love the information.

I so appreciate that this is being held! Will it be recorded? I work this evening so can’t attend and would love to watch a recording. Thank you.
