Today is National Diabetes Education Week, and a new curriculum has become one of the hottest topics of discussion.
A group of students at a New York City elementary school are asking the question: How can we better prepare our children for life after diabetes?
For nearly a decade, the diabetes community has been working to create a new school curriculum to provide a healthy environment for kids with diabetes.
The idea behind the new curriculum is that we can all be more productive, more resilient and more resilient to life’s challenges if we all understand the basics of diabetes.
That’s what a new class, Diabetes Educators, is trying to address.
“Diabetes educators are educators who have an interest in diabetes and the ways in which diabetes affects the life of a student,” says the group’s director, Kayleigh McEnany.
“We’re looking to bring this experience to students, so they can better understand the impact of diabetes on their health and on their future.”
McEnany’s group has created a curriculum called Diabetes Educator 2.0 that aims to teach kids about diabetes, its impact on their lives and how to live with it.
In its new version, the class also focuses on how kids learn to control diabetes symptoms.
It includes information on managing diabetes in everyday life, such as how to identify a diabetic in your family, how to communicate effectively with a parent or caregiver about diabetes symptoms, and how diabetes affects people of color.
“The curriculum emphasizes what we believe in and what we know,” says McEnony.
“It’s focused on the basics and it’s focused not just on how to manage diabetes, but also on how you manage it in a healthy way.
We really feel like this is a new paradigm for learning about diabetes.”
The curriculum includes information about how to prevent diabetes, the benefits of lifestyle changes, how diabetes can affect a student’s self-esteem, and what it’s like to be diagnosed with diabetes as a teenager.
It’s all about the basics for students to be prepared for the future, says McEnta.
“I don’t think the curriculum is going to be able to provide that education for everyone,” she says.
“But we want to make it a great learning experience for all of us.”
The classes are taking place at New York Public Schools in the Bronx, Harlem, Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan and Staten Island.
Each class is teaching four students to work together to create curriculum that reflects the health, safety, wellness and education values of the New York state government.
The New York Department of Education has not announced a curriculum for the Bronx classes yet, but it is expected to be launched soon.
The new curriculum at schools is being developed by a group of teachers and community leaders from the Bronx.
The project is part of the Education Innovation Initiative, a nationwide effort to create schools that are “dedicated to delivering the highest quality learning environments for all students,” according to the Education Department.
“This is an incredible opportunity to be a part of an effort that is making a real impact in New York,” says Jennifer Ecker, a teacher at Harlem’s Roosevelt Elementary.
“The school system is committed to bringing students to school in healthy, safe environments.
They have great staff, great facilities, and they have really taken a bold approach to how they are doing this.
It is amazing to see.”
Ecker is the principal of Roosevelt Elementary, a school with more than 1,000 students.
“It’s an exciting time for the community, but we are all really grateful to have this opportunity,” says Ecker.
“As a community, we all have to work to make sure that we are doing the right things to be resilient, to be happy, to do our part to support our children.
I’m glad we are able to be part of this.
And it’s an incredible chance to see our kids get better.”
