Transition Resource Guide
NEW ONLINE TRANSITION GUIDE
In 2022, with generous support from our community donors and sponsors, a new Online Transition Guide was developed as a companion tool to complement the content available in the print edition of our Transition Guide. The guide features interactive alumni insights and a searchable database that will enable students to search for transition information by city, college and diabetes supports. The Online Transition Guide and printed guide have been developed to support transitioning teens in making informed decisions about their college/university choices and current students who have recently transitioned to post-secondary education.
TRANSITION IN THE KITCHEN
Recognizing the need for providing a tool for students to take charge of their nutritional needs and requirements, Diabetes Hope Foundation, along with their alumni spearheaded a supplementary guide to accompany our “Guide for Successful Transition to College and Universities” to provide youth in transition with easy, healthy recipes and tips for managing their diet and diabetes while living away from home and on campus.
TRANSITION WELLNESS WEBINARS
LET'S TALK ABOUT IT
It always helps to know that you’re not alone and that someone else “gets it”. DHF’s new webinars are designed to bring parents together to talk about their own struggles of dealing with the challenges of this disease, and provides support to alleviate their fears and anxieties through casual interaction and conversation with other parents. An introduction to the Foundation’s programs and resources for today’s youth with T1D is also discussed.
