Tennessee Safe at School Victory

Tennessee law now allows school employees to volunteer to be trained to help children with diabetes with essential care tasks, including administering insulin, because of Diabetes Advocates! Now, Tennessee children with diabetes can be safe at school. Senate Bill 1445 was signed by Governor Bill Haslam, and will make a huge difference in children’s lives.

Special thanks to Senator Steven Dickerson (District 20), Representative Cameron Sexton (District 25) and Governor Bill Haslam for their leadership on this important issue.

This will lead to a better, safer and fairer school environment for Tennessee students with diabetes and the work will continue to ensure the law is implemented across the state.
