Children learn about diabetes and checking glucose levels at Diabetes Family Day, a day of education and activities for pediatric diabetes patients and their families, sponsored by the Vanderbilt Diabetes Center.

The yearly event brings together families living with diabetes to share ideas about how to handle the daily challenges that arise from the disease.

Nearly 200 children and adults attended this year's event, held Oct. 24 at the Student Life Center, which kicked off American Diabetes Month activities. For a list of Vanderbilt's diabetes month activities, visit:
