Hawaii News Now presents the story of Kaimana DeRamos who currently has Type 1 Diabetes. Governor David Ige signed the House Bill 10 which recognizes the need for students to be tested for diabetes.
“Kaimana DeRamos is a kindergartener at Mililani Uka Elementary. Like many five year old boys, he likes playing dinosaurs with friends. But Kaimana isn’t like most five-year-olds. He has Type 1 Diabetes.
“He is one of the first students that we’ve had with Type 1 diabetes. So in any school, we are to keep children safe as well as responsible for their learning. But when they come with a health condition, sometimes we actually need additional personnel in order for them to continue to be safe,” said school principal Heather Wilhelm.”
