Students With Diabetes 2017 National Conference

If you’re 18–30 years of age and living with Type 1 diabetes[1], you may be interested in the 2017 Students With Diabetes/Young Adults With Diabetes National Conference and Leadership Academy in Orlando, Florida, hosted by the Diabetes Empowerment Foundation.

The Diabetes Empowerment Foundation seeks to “empower people living with diabetes[2] to live positive, productive, limitless lives.” To that end, the organization is holding its seventh annual conference to introduce young adults with Type 1 and their partners to innovative diabetes research, new treatments, and information about living with diabetes during this stage of life.


The conference will feature keynote speeches from diabetes experts, break-out sessions on various diabetes-related topics, group activities, and a Leadership Academy on professional skill-building and succeeding in a diabetes career, along with a career fair.

The event will be taking place at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld from May 26–28, 2017. Tickets are $99.00 (plus a $6.44 fee) through March 1, 2017, and $125.00 (plus a $7.87 fee) through May 3, 2017. Tickets to the Leadership Academy are $30.00 (plus a $2.64 fee). Registration fees cover a double-occupancy hotel room, dinner on Friday, and lunch on Saturday, plus conference attendance and materials.
