New Conference for Adults With Type 1 Diabetes

If you’re an adult with Type 1 diabetes, you may be interested in “ONE: The Ultimate Conference & Retreat for Adults with Type 1 Diabetes,” being presented by Taking Control of Your Diabetes (TCOYD) this summer.

TCOYD is a nonprofit organization founded by Steven Edelman, an endocrinologist with Type 1 diabetes, in 1995 to “educate and motivate people with diabetes to take a more active role in their condition.” The group has a number of initiatives, including its online reality series Extreme Diabetes Makeover; its recurring video series, “The Edelman Report”; and its national conferences and health fairs.

The program includes presentations on topics such as “The Artificial Pancreas: It’s Closer Than You Think,” “The Big Debate: Pumps Versus Multiple Daily Injections,” “Alcohol and Diabetes: Do They Mix?” and “It’s Not Just About Your A1C!” Loved ones are also encouraged to attend, and can participate in a special workshop, “Supporting Your Loved Ones With Type 1.” For the full list of events, see the official conference brochure.
