Family and Youth Programs
Keiki Ohana Konnection
We understand that being diagnosed with diabetes as a child can be a confusing and frustrating experience for children and their families. Keiki Ohana Konnection (KOK) brings Hawaii's children with diabetes and their families together with other families struggling with the same daily diabetes management issues in a safe and fun learning environment with the Association staff and volunteers.
Safe at School - Back to School Event
Bishop Museum in the Atherton Halau
The American Diabetes Association had a wonderful time with the families of the Keiki Ohana Konnection at our Back-to-School Event held at the Bishop Museum on Sunday, September 15. The families enjoyed lunch together at the Atherton Halau and explored the Bishop Museum's many exhibits, including the dinosaur exhibit. Parents shared back-to-school-tips to keep our keiki Safe at School and the children enjoyed playing fun games together!
For more information about our KOK program and events, please contact LJ Duenas at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the American Diabetes Association at 808-947-5979.
Learning to live with diabetes doesn’t happen overnight – and you don’t have to do it alone. The Association's Family Link program connects you to other families of children with diabetes. Visit www.diabetes.org/familylink to learn more about Family Link.
The Everyday Wisdom Kit™
The Everyday Wisdom Kit is a tool designed to help families of children with type 1 diabetes, ages 8 and up, live with diabetes every day. When a child is diagnosed with a chronic disease like type 1 diabetes, everyday moments can become more of a challenge.
The Everyday Wisdom Kit helps families plan for everyday moments and events such as birthday parties, playing sports and getting behind the wheel. Thanks to an educational grant by Lilly, the Everyday Wisdom Kit is available for FREE.
