Off to College and Out On Your Own

Pediatric Diabetes and Endocrinology

Off to College and Out On Your Own

This workshop, presented by UW Health pediatric diabetes experts, is designed for high school students or graduates with diabetes who are planning to be “out on their own” in the fall of 2020.

Topics will include:

  • Managing your schedule
  • Planning meals
  • Talking about diabetes with your roommate
  • Other subjects to help you succeed and enjoy a healthy future

We will have a guest panel with other college students who have Type 1 Diabetes. You will have the opportunity to complete your power of attorney paperwork. We will have paperwork prepared for you to take to your school for accommodations needed due to diabetes.

Social workers, endocrinologists, clinical nutritionists and diabetes nurse educators will present on various topics and answer questions from attendees.

Space is limited, so we encourage you to sign up early. Family members or friends/roommates are also welcome and encouraged to attend.

Dinner will be provided.

The event will be held in the Health Sciences Learning Center (HSLC), Room 1345, Madison Wi (View map)
