Diabetes in CollegeHow Students Can Stay Safe, Healthy & Happy on Campus

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 30 million people—nearly 10 percent of the population—are currently living with diabetes. Among them are many college students, who may find that managing diabetes while attending school is a tough task. Living a full life with diabetes is more than possible, though, and this guide aims to ease the burden. Here students can find information on what diabetes entails, what to expect from living with it during college and what accommodations are available.
