Question from Oakland, California, USA:
How can we locate an English speaking doctor in Paris who can treat a 12-year-old type 1 (recently diagnosed) child in an emergency, especially in the month of August when many Parisians are on vacation?
From: DTeam Staff
The best way to find a doctor in a foreign country is to contact the U.S. Embassy in the capital upon arrival in country. The Embassy will have a list of English-speaking doctors in the area.
Additional comments from Virginia Valentine, diabetes nurse specialist:
You could check the ADA professional directory: many members are from all over the world and you would be getting a name of someone who specializes in diabetes.
