The TypeOneNation Summit is a free, all-day educational and networking opportunity for the T1D community. The Summit brings together T1D experts to share their knowledge on the latest treatments, breakthroughs in research, and the psycho-social aspects of living (and thriving!) with T1D. Our event will feature talks from leading JDRF-funded researchers and other experts in the field, breakout sessions, and a separate Youth Program and Teen Track for children ages 5-18. In addition, the event will also include a vendor fair with representatives from diabetes medical device companies, insulin manufacturers, diabetes camps, local healthcare providers, and other diabetes related organizations. This event is designed for all ages at all stages and offers something for everyone: parents, children, teens, adults, grandparents, caregivers, school nurses, healthcare providers, and more.
Our 2016 event drew over 800 attendees; 40% reported they had T1D, 42% had a child with T1D and 5% had a relative with T1D.
