A diagnosis of type 1 or type 2 diabetes means you should be mindful of what you eat and how different foods affect your blood sugars at all times.

I’m so excited to share this with you. This is not a meeting on wearing masks or not wearing masks; it is not about whether you should home school your child or not; it is about knowing that different states, as well as school districts, have different protocols.
