Will someone at your child's school administer glucagon if needed?

Poll dates: September 1 - 8, 2002
Total Votes: 555

Children with diabetes do not leave their diabetes at home when they go to school. They need the same kind of care at school that they would received at home, and that includes having a glucagon emergency kit available and ready to use in case it's needed.

Sixty percent of those who responded said that someone at school will administer glucagon if needed. Sadly, 18% indicated that the school refuses. Parents seeking to encourage schools to allow glucagon administration can use Virginia's legislation as an example.
