Thank you for participating in our Type 1 Diabetes Education and Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) Prevention Campaign within Pennsylvania. The campaign, in partnership with the PA Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, launched in early November, 2016. You should have recently received a packet with an introductory letter from PAAAP (you can see a digital version of that HERE), Warning Signs Posters (in English and Spanish), a larger wall cling-on version of the English poster, a parent handout for interested patients (that you can photocopy in your offices), and a survey card (which you can also fill out online HERE). Below, you will find downloadable black & white versions of these posters, posters in a variety of other languages, audio files that you can download and use on your office on-hold systems, resources for newly diagnosed T1D patients, and a warning signs video.

We hope that you will make use of these materials in your office, and will help educate patients about the warning signs of T1D and DKA. For more information on DKA, and why we need your help, please refer to this article by our CEO + Co-Founder Sarah Lucas. For a look at our broader, national DKA campaign, you can read this article by our COO, Thom Scher. For a study examining T1D incidence rate in Pennsylvania specifically, we invite you to read this article by campaign supporter Terri Lipman (published in Diabetes Care) discussing the increasing prevalence of T1D.

If you need more materials, have questions, or want to share your feedback, please email us at hello@beyondtype1.org.
