Question from California:
I am currently in the process to adopt a sibling group from Latvia. The girl, who is 11 has type 1 diabetes. I am looking to find where I get educated and training on how to care for a child with this type of diabetes. Is there any online class where I can get any type of certification as proof of training, that I can submit to Latvia?
The University of California, San Francisco, has many online documents you may find helpful, at:
Also, Dr. Peter Chase’s book, Understanding Diabetes, can also be found online at:
We are unaware of any programs that provide a certificate to prove you have received education. You should consider contacting your local children’s hospital to see if they know of any educational programs that might be beneficial.
