Boston, MA, July 10, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- The College Diabetes Network (CDN) is excited to announce that they will be presenting a poster at the Association on Higher Education and Disability conference on July 13.
The Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD) conference, Equity & Excellence: Access in Higher Education, will be held in Boston from July 9-13. This international conference will host attendees from around the world for professional development and networking around higher education and disability issues.
CDN’s poster, “Providing equitable and adequate services to students with type 1 diabetes,” will be featured in the poster section of the exhibit hall on Saturday, July 13th. This poster provides critical background information on CDN’s campus pilot program, including their work creating resources for campus administrators to better support young adults with type one diabetes who are pursuing higher education.
“It is critical that colleges and universities understand the challenges young adults with type one diabetes face on a day to day basis,” said Anna Sabino, CDN’s Program Director. “We are excited that AHEAD is featuring our poster to bring light to this important population.”
CDN is creating resources for both health and disability centers to allow them to be able to better deliver the services and adequate care students need to succeed on campus, both socially and academically. These resources, which will be available in the fall for the 2019-2020 academic year, provide an overview of type one diabetes and how it impacts a student’s life. They will also outline ways in which administrators can ensure their students are safe, supported, and secure while making the transition to college.
