Event description

Description

The TypeOneNation Summit is a free, half-day educational and networking opportunity for the type 1 diabetes (T1D) community. The summit allows T1D experts, physicians and researchers 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 multiple breakout sessions, workshops, and unique networking opportunities for children and teens. Additionally, the event features a robust exhibit hall of vendors representing the latest in diabetes management technology, resources, products and research.

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!
