Back to Rufus Rufus Attends the IDYA Trip to Denmark

Notes from Denmark

Rufus has been learning a lot about the way diabetics live in Denmark. He has been talking with Anja and Marie and having a great time. (Anja and Marie are from Denmark) He is very excited because they are going to take him home with them! One interesting thing that he has learned about diabetics here have a different scale that they use for their blood sugar levels. If you take your number and divide it by 18 (on the American scale) you'll get it the way they read it. Have fun Rufus!

Rufus is enjoying his conversation with IDYA members from Michigan, Ohio, Oregon and Denmark! We have been talking about the differences in diabetes care in Denmark and the US - he is very excited to be hearing about this. We are in the Admiral Hotel in Copenhagen and Rufus found out that he will be traveling through Denmark for the first part of his trip. I hope he has fun!!!!

15, IDYA but not diabetes - Sam's sister

Rufus is learning more about Denmark, and all the places he will go! He has learned that there are not very many people on insulin pumps in Denmark. Anja has a pump though, and she enjoyed sharing about it. Both Anja and Marie are very confident, and they told Rufus that they don't have problems in their schools. Rufus is excited about going to school with them! Also, Rufus is excited because both Anja and Marie will be able to come to the Children With Diabetes Conference in July 2003 in Orlando, Florida. He hopes they have an awesome time visiting!
