Happy Leap Year!
Even with the extra day of February, it seems like the semester is flying by! We hope that you all have a fun and safe spring break, and that your low supplies are well stocked with leftover valentines day candy :)

SafesittingsWe are excited to announce that we have partnered with Safesittings.com, an online type 1 diabetes babysitting resource which connects families with babysitters experienced with type 1 diabetes.

Through our partnership, we are excited to provide our members with access to Safesittings, through which they can find local babysitting opportunities (talk about job security!)
