New Onset Bags For Barbara Davis Center Patients

IMG_0225The Education Committee provides patients who have been newly diagnosed at the Barbara Davis Center with a “New Onset Bag.”  This drawstring backpack includes informational materials about the Children’s Diabetes Foundation and The Guild; a water bottle; a “Be The Change” bracelet; coloring book and an adorable Pink Panther stuffed animal to take home.

Most importantly, there is an inquiry card for families to fill out.  By returning this card, you will be put on our mailing lists to receive invitations to upcoming events exclusively for patients of the Barbara Davis Center.  If you are a patient (or parent) and would like to receive these updates, but haven’t received a inquiry card, you can download it here and mail it to the CDF office.
