Attention School Nurses!

With heavy hearts due to the uncertainty of the Covid-19 virus, we are postponing the March 28th Diabetes Education Program for School Nurse. We will reassess in the next few weeks when we have more information about conducting a remote program on a weekday or rescheduling another in-person program. More information will be forthcoming. We thank all of you for your patience and understanding during this very difficult time.

Stay safe and healthy!

Thank you for your support,
