This program covers three common medical conditions and how to help students deal with them — both day-to-day and in emergencies. When you are able to treat a student’s medical condition as a normal part of life, you encourage them — and their fellow students to act this way as well. In turn, students can stop focusing on their medical condition and put their energy towards daily living and creating a bright future.
