Diabetes Education at Summer Camp
Setebaid Services, a not-for-profit organization, forges partnerships with healthcare providers and diabetes educators to operate diabetes summer camps and other social support programs for their pediatric patients with diabetes.
Education is the Key for Children & Teens Living with Diabetes
Our organization focuses on the patients, children and teens with diabetes, and recognizes education is the key to improved health for these youth.
This prevention model is a catalyst to learning, infusing medical professionals’ expertise, with certified diabetes educators and professional teachers’ educational psychology to improve how we teach youth to manage their diabetes.
Setebaid Services summer camp programs serve as the method to teach the youth; our volunteers remain key to improving the lives of the children and families we serve.
