Free Kit for Children Newly Diagnosed With Type 1 Diabetes

Is your child newly diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes[1]? Then you may be interested in a Courage-Wisdom-Hope Kit, providing “help and hugs for families.”[2]


To help kids with Type 1 and their loved ones adjust, the kit includes a parent guide, kid’s interactive guide, sibling guide, drawstring bag for a meter and other supplies, and a write-on magnet and pen for keeping track of emergency contacts. While the kit cannot take the place of seeing a health-care provider, it is intended to help fill in some of the blanks.

To order your free kit, call (800) DIABETES (342-2383), Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM to 8:00 PM ET, or order the kit online[3].
