RE: [IPp] NORTH CAROLINA PASSES SCHOOL LEGISLATION



That's great that the diabetic student will have access to glucagon at all
times. However, when they are unconcious or seizing having access won't do
them any good, since they can't give it to themselves.

The legislation should have been for the schools to have one or more adults
on duty at all times that are trained to administer glucagon to a diabetic
student in an emergency.
