Free Driving Clinics for Teens With Type 1

Web Team

June 29, 2013

Are you a teenager with Type 1 diabetes and a valid driver’s license or learner’s permit? Then you may be interested in free driving clinics being offered by the nonprofit Juvenile Diabetes No Limits Foundation.

According to the foundation, “Check B4U Drive is a one-day drivers mini-camp combining effective diabetes management with advanced driving skills.” The program includes presentations about safe driving and dealing with critical situations, a discussion with a certified diabetes educator, and in-car practice with professional drivers learning about hard stops, slalom handling, accident avoidance, and more.

For more information, check out photos from previous clinics in this piece by diabetes blogger Scott K. Johnson or see the program’s official YouTube channel.

The next clinic is coming up in Tinley Park, Illinois, on July 13, 2013. To register, click here. And if you’re interested in having a B4U Drive clinic come to your area, contact the Juvenile Diabetes No Limits Foundation.
