Re: [IP] Speaking to a nursing class

Encourage them to become CDE's.
If they do - they should do a trial like the nurse who wrote the piece for 
Diabetes Forcast - where she actually wore a pump and went through all the 
steps for something like a week (maybe even a month).
Don't be snotty about peoples weight - it's a vicious circle between insulin, 
food, exercise. Better BG's often means more insulin and more weight.
Take care of themselves.

Thank them for going into a very demanding (and often thankless) profession.
