Virginia Diabetes Medical Management Plan

Purpose: This collaborative plan recently updated by the American Diabetes Association should be completed by the student’s personal diabetes health care team, including the parents/guardians. It should be reviewed with relevant school staff and copies should be kept in a place that can be accessed easily by the school nurse, trained diabetes personnel, and other authorized personnel. The DMMP should be updated annually at the start of every school year and/or anytime the student’s diabetes care management changes. Links for the plan and related documents/training materials are below:
