Diabetes Self-Management Blog

If you’re a woman who has diabetes, then you’ll want to check out the upcoming 2014 Weekend for Women in Los Angeles, California, organized by the nonprofit group DiabetesSisters.

Scheduled for October 24–25, the Weekend for Women conference aims to “educate, inspire, and transform women’s view of their diabetes so that they can live full, happy lives with the disease.” The weekend includes a variety of social and educational events, including designated time to meet and mingle with other conference attendees and breakout sessions on topics ranging from dealing with eating disorders to understanding how the Affordable Care Act affects women with diabetes. All women with diabetes — including prediabetes, Type 1, Type 2, LADA, and gestational diabetes — are welcome to attend, as are loved ones such as boyfriends, parents, and best friends.

A limited number of discount hotel rooms at the Embassy Suites Los Angeles Hotel are available through this reservation site.

Registration for the Weekend for Women is $125 until October 10, 2014, and $150 thereafter. (Four scholarships are available for women demonstrating a true financial need.) The registration fees cover conference attendance, educational sessions, a reception on Friday night, breakfast and lunch on Saturday, and a conference tote bag and commemorative t-shirt. For more information about the conference, and to register, click here.
