Diabetes, College & Me – Dawgs for Diabetes

DAWGS for Diabetes 2016

Check out this upcoming tour opportunity from UGA:

This tour is a chance for high school students with type 1 diabetes who are interested in attending college to learn a little bit more about diabetes in college. We know personally that transitioning from high school to college is hard for the average person but especially hard for type 1s. We know both students and parents have questions and fears that they need addressed before they make the big jump.

At the tour, we provide resources through a presentation, several inspiring speakers (some of our students, alumni, authors, UGA staff, parents, and more), resource booths set up by important departments of UGA (including the disability resource center, the career center, food services, school departments, and more), panels, and an optional tour. Our panels are the most important part because this is where students and parents get to ask our students and parents any questions they may have.

Our tour is Saturday, October 22nd in Athens, Georgia on UGA’s campus from 12 to 5 PM. It is free for students and their families, but you must sign up prior to the event at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc9vO2j8HbQH12Fk3ln-gYFNyTpA9oxou5EWrh_a0Z35QjO1A/viewform which is on our Facebook page Dawgs for Diabetes Awareness at UGA along with other pertinent information..

Please pass this information along to any student who may benefit from the tour. They do not have to be considering UGA to come to the tour! We welcome anyone who is considering attending college.
