Albanese-O’Neill Co-Authors Article on Pediatrics Diabetes Care
College of Nursing Assistant Professor Anastasia Albanese-O’Neill co-authored an article related to guidelines for children with diabetes at elementary and secondary school settings published by the American Diabetes Association. The position statement on diabetes management in the elementary and secondary school setting includes the recommendation that school nurses, as well as other school staff, be properly trained to meet the needs of students with diabetes, including training for dealing with hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia and that every student with diabetes have an individualized Diabetes Medical Management Plan that sets out the specifics of that student’s diabetes management needs. Albanese-O’Neill was featured in a Sirius XM program titled “Doctor Chat” to discuss the guidelines along with Desmond Schatz, MD, Professor and Associate Chairman of Pediatrics in the College of Medicine, who is the incoming president of the American Diabetes Association.
