Students in New Mexico Not Safe at School

In schools across New Mexico, children with diabetes aren’t able to get life-saving medication at school because no one is trained and available to provide care. And students who are able to do so are being prevented from self-managing their diabetes.

Right now, your state senator is considering critical Safe at School legislation that would ensure children with diabetes are safe at school and have the same educational opportunities as their classmates.

There’s no time to waste! Your senator is expected to vote on this legislation soon. That’s why they need to hear from you today.

Help make sure every student in New Mexico can survive and thrive at school! Contact your senator today using the form below.

Dear [Decision Maker],

As your constituent and a New Mexican concerned about children living with diabetes, I'm writing to join with the American Diabetes Association in urging you to support the Student Diabetes Management Act, SB 148 (Stewart). This legislation would allow school staff members to volunteer to be trained to give insulin and glucagon. It would also allow students who are mature enough to do so to independently self-manage their diabetes.



Please support SB 148. It allows schools to provide the care children with diabetes need to stay safe and healthy. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to your response.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
