condition. The Plan covers a broad range of health benefits, including

In April 2011, the Helmsley Charitable
Trust launched its Type 1 Diabetes Camp Grants Initiative to support camp
scholarships (camperships) for youth throughout the United States. The $1.3
million initiative expands on the Trust's 2010 pilot initiative and will
allow more low-income youth with type 1 diabetes to attend summer
residential or day camps nationwide in 2011 and 2012.
Grantees for the initiative were selected through a limited Request for
Proposals (RFP) process in early 2011. The 15 camps represent 14 different
states and were selected for their commitment to providing educational
diabetes management in a safe, fun environment. Most of the organizations
awarded grants are members of the Diabetes Education and Camping Association
(DECA) and accredited by the American Camping Association (ACA).

Researchers, from Palo Alto University, are conducting a study to learn about the impact of various forms of
support on quality of life for parents and siblings of children and adolescents with diabetes; as well as, the
psychosocial effect felt by the siblings. The study is open to children, ages 6-17 years, whose sibling has been
diagnosed with Type I Diabetes. For households with more than 1 sibling, the sibling that is closest in age to
the child with Type I Diabetes should participate in the study, and parents or caregivers with a child who has
been diagnosed with Type I Diabetes.
