Diabetes Education for High School Students, via Internet

Mount Aloysius College

Mount Aloysius College contracted Flipside to create a diabetes education web portal that provides secure, private education to high school students who have diabetes. Over the course of the 18-month program, students would log into the education portal on a weekly basis and receive educational content. After reviewing the content, the student answers a few brief questions to gauge understanding. Additionally, prior to the start of the project, school nurses and some other school personal received basic diabetes education, which was made available to them via the portal. All of the administration of the system was done via Flipside's central servers, and all data is automatically gathers for the researchers.
