WDD Workshop: Day 2

Just a quick update now…

Today, so far, in the Youth Advocacy summit has been relatively short (in comparison to yesterday’s list of activities).  We began the day with a workshop on the DAWN Youth program, which is an extension of the original DAWN program.  Essentially, the program (DAWN stands for Diabetes Attitudes, Wishes and Needs) works to research and then address the more psychosocial aspects of life with diabetes.  With the DAWN Youth program, one of the main issues of focus is diabetes in children at school.  So, we discussed how we can work to raise awareness of diabetes issues in schools and help school-age children by setting up appropriate support networks around the world.

I must run, but more later!
