Our daughter was diagnosed 6 months and as a HS junior. We are beginning to seriously narrow down her college choices. My question is: did you choose to apply to colleges closer to home because of your diabetes or are you going away far from home? We are thinking of looking in a 2 hour radius of our home. Does that make sense? As college students or parents of college students- is it more convenient to attend college close to home? Do you have an endo in your college town? Or do you keep your endo appts. with your home doctor? As a parent, have you ever had to drive to school to take care of your child in an emergency situation or when they have been ill? Lots of questions. Thanks for your input. Worried Mom.
