Senator DiDomenico testified at an Education Committee hearing in support of his bill, S.262, which would help children with diabetes management in school. DiDomenico explained to his committee colleagues, “I know how hard and time-consuming it is to manage diabetes for many of our students. We are in a time right now where we are reimagining schools and how we can best support our families.This bill will allow countless students to remain in their classrooms and receive the education and school experience they deserve.”

The bill, An Act providing for diabetes management in schools, would allow a school nurse or school physician to designate other school staff to give a glucose monitoring test or insulin in the case a student is unable to self-administer the test or give themselves insulin.
