College Diabetes Network (CDN)
DOSES: Diabetes Outreach, Support and Education for Students, is the College Diabetes Network (CDN) Chapter at Ohio University. The purpose of DOSES is to provide a support network for diabetics on campus, while educating non-diabetics to create a better educated and more diabetes friendly campus. We are working to make Ohio University into the most diabetes friendly campus in the nation.
Student Accessibility Services
Students coming to college with a chronic illness, such as diabetes, are encouraged to register with Student Accessibility Services (SAS). SAS can assist students by notifying professors of considerations that may need to be made to help you manage your diabetes. This might include the need to eat during class time or alerting them that you wear an insulin pump and it may sound like a cell phone. SAS will also help make accommodations for students who may have to miss an exam due to a high or low blood sugar spike.
Campus Care physicians and nurse practitioners provide student focused care for acute and chronic illnesses, such as diabetes. They also have an on-site pharmacy for immediate needs.
Diabetes Tips for Students
Faculty at the Diabetes Institute and students from the DOSES student organization have put together a tip sheet for students leaving home to live on campus with diabetes.
