New Mexico Kids With Diabetes Aren't Safe at School

In New Mexico schools, children with diabetes aren’t able to get insulin (or glucagon) at school because no one is trained and available to provide care. And students who are able to give themselves insulin are prevented from doing so.

Tell your state representative to support kids with diabetes and pass SB 48. 

Help make sure every student in every school in New Mexico has access to the care needed to survive AND thrive! Contact your representative today using the form below.

Dear [Decision Maker],

As your constituent and a New Mexican concerned about kids with diabetes, I'm writing to join with the American Diabetes Association in urging you to support the Student Diabetes Management Act, SB 48. 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.



This legislation will make a huge difference in children's lives. Its commonsense changes in state law would make school safer and the future brighter for kids with diabetes.

Please support SB 48. 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,
