Diabetes Management in Schools Act Will Help Ensure Oklahoma Students With Diabetes Are Safe at School

operation.

"By passing this bill, our legislature has taken a major step to ensuring that children living with diabetes in Oklahoma will have every chance to be safe at school and have the same educational opportunities as other children," said Gil Morris, Chair-Elect of the Tulsa County Leadership Board of the American Diabetes Association. "I am proud that Oklahoma has taken the initiative and I hope it leads to other states doing the same for their children with diabetes."

ADA credited a number of legislators for helping to secure the bill's passage.

Speaker Cargill said, "As the number of American children living with diabetes grows, the need for care in schools will continue to increase. I'm very pleased that we are able to provide this assistance to our students."

Added Senate President Pro Tem Morgan: "Students with diabetes deserve this assistance at school so they can spend more time concentrating on learning and less time out of the classroom to manage their condition."

Co-President of the Senate Coffee said: "This legislation is very exciting. Coping with this serious, chronic disease is difficult for our children already. They should be able to attend school knowing that they will have the proper care and same educational opportunities that their peers do. We need to ensure that students with diabetes can learn in a healthy and safe environment. This bill goes a long way toward making that a reality for children with diabetes throughout Oklahoma."

Diabetes is one of this nation's most prevalent, debilitating, deadly and costly diseases. Nearly 21 million American children and adults live with diabetes today, another 54 million have pre-diabetes. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in three Americans born in 2000 will develop diabetes in their lifetime if current trends continue.
