World Diabetes Day- Next Month!

November 14th is World Diabetes Day!

I am going to speak to middle schoolers this year for World Diabetes Day! I'm super excited! I think that kids retain information more successfully than adults (mostly because we grown ups have too much garbage to think about! HA!) so I am super excited about this opportunity! I have some fun things in mind and will be bringing all my fun gadgets, giving myself a glucose test, and letting the students inject saline into oranges! :)

And of course I plan on addressing the BIGGEST misconceptions and common questions. "Do you have the BAD diabetes?" "Are you SURE you should eat that?" "You have diabetes? But you aren't overweight!"


What are YOU planning on doing to help bring awareness of diabetes? If you have any great take aways or resources for me please feel free to link me up!! Thanks!
