Off To Boarding School With Diabetes

Off to Boarding School with Diabetes | The LOOP Blog
Earlier this year we introduced you to Ed Monas, who you learned has many titles, two of which are Director of Sales Initiatives and Distributor Operations here at Medtronic and “diabetes dad.” Ed and his wife Linda have a son Grey who has had type 1 diabetes since he was 10 months old. Grey is now a teenager and taking more and more responsibility for his own diabetes. Last fall, he even spent a semester at boarding school 2,000+ miles away from home. While he ultimately decided to return to California to finish high school, Grey’s diabetes management went well even while far away from Mom and Dad – which is good news as the Monas family starts to think about college in a few years! Watch this video for Ed’s tips on how to prepare as a family and work with school officials to build a strong diabetes support system at school.
