Are you an adult with diabetes? Then you may be interested in attending the 2015 Diabetes UnConference at the Flamingo Las Vegas.

The Diabetes UnConference is a peer-to-peer support conference that “allows participants to create and moderate the agenda, allowing for a wide variety of topics and viewpoints that might never be covered in a traditional conference.” Attendees may have Type 1, Type 2, LADA (Type 1.5), or any other type of diabetes. The agenda is created during the first hour of the conference based on the needs and wants of the participants and may cover topics including diabetes burnout, depression, sex, discrimination, financial issues, getting inspired to exercise, family, and hypoglycemia treatments.

The conference runs from March 13–15, 2015 at the Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. Friday evening is a special event discussing diabetes advocacy. Saturday morning consists of a “get to know you session” and the creation of a conference agenda based on the ideas and suggestions from the attendees. The agenda will be followed throughout Saturday and Sunday with breaks for meals, and the conference will officially wrap up on Sunday afternoon.

The cost to register for the meeting is $139, excluding hotel and travel. Refunds (minus a $75 card/event processing fee) will be given if requested by January 1, 2015. Rooms can be reserved at the Flamingo Las Vegas for a special conference rate of $69 a night (plus tax and fees).
