Hi Manny and Community,
I have asked the CDP students to sign up on 
Tu Diabetes to be informed about the vital source for education and support.
Please watch and participate.

Thank you

Could you maybe explain what Community Diabetes Project is?

HS students from Novato are learning about DM and then teaching DM in community programs.
I have asked the students to experience this forum of 
Education and engagement
Please ask them about their efforts and what more they need to learn?
Thank you

Interesting. Personally, while I respect high school students and their energy and intelligence, I would be concerned that they would receive enough information to "teach DM in community programs". Teaching implies a degree of expertise that doesn't come overnight. I personally think it would be more valuable to have PWD's who are knowledgeable act in this capacity.

Hi, what are PWD's . The program is just a start. Each student continues to learn and role model, healthy living, answers to the hard questions of healthy food choices, regular movement. I was really hoping to see some of the students by now on this forum.Thank you for reading and asking questions. I look forward to your answers.

PWD's are People with Diabetes. People who know what it is like to manage Diabetes 24/7 and whether they are Type 1 or Type 2, that is a very complex process. I also question when I see something purporting to "educate on diabetes" because type 1 and 2 are very different conditions and "general diabetes education" is either just that....waaaaay too general, or it is pretty much geared to type 2's since they are the largest population. (Though not by as much as once thought. It used to be thought to be 90/10, and it is actually more like 75/25.

They are lurking. heh heh heh.

Lurking is good. Maybe Mr Jack can welcome them.
