Diabetes Awareness

This program was developed to educate children about diabetes, to address the issues pertaining to this condition. It also promotes sensitivity toward people with diabetes.

Puppet Christine Konts was diagnosed with diabetes at a young age. She learned that she didn't do anything "wrong" to make her get diabetes, it just happens to some people. During the program Christine explains to her friends Nam, and Joanne that she has to eat healthy foods, check her blood three to four times a day and take her insulin daily so she can live a healthy happy life just like everyone else.
