American Diabetes Association Applauds the Passage of Georgia House Bill 879
Bill Will Ensure Children With Diabetes Are Safe at School
ALEXANDRIA, VA, Apr 16, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- The American Diabetes Association is pleased to announce the passage of Georgia House Bill 879, a key piece of legislation in the fight to keep children with diabetes medically safe at school. This bill, which was signed by Governor Nathan Deal earlier today, allows volunteer school employees who are properly trained to assist children with diabetes in administering their insulin, if needed. This bill also allows children, if they are capable to do so, to self-manage their diabetes while at school.
