What is the Safe at School campaign?

The American Diabetes Association has long been involved in working to end discrimination against students with diabetes. To further these efforts, ADA launched the Safe at School campaign to ensure that students with diabetes are safe at school and can fully participate in all school activities. You can find more information about the campaign at ADA’s website (www.diabetes.org/safeatschool).
Written materials are also available from the ADA that explain diabetes care in a school setting. One example of an ADA pamphlet is “Children with Diabetes: Information for Schools and Child Care Providers.” The ADA’s packet on school discrimination can be obtained at www.diabetes.org or by calling 1-800-DIABETES. You can also discuss a specific school or day care problem with an ADA legal advocate.
