Are there any costs associated with the summit?
Thanks to generous sponsors and donors, we are able to provide this full day educational summit free of charge to our attendees. We do ask that you let us know 48 hours in advance if you register and ARE NOT able to attend so we can have accurate lunch estimates for attendees.
What are my parking options getting to the event?
The most convenient parking options are the Kiowa and the Julesburg Lots West of the Education I & II Buildings. Parking in each lot costs $1 for the day. You will need to use the parking meter machines in each lot to generate a parking ticket to place on your dash. You are not to park in the Barbara Davis Patient lot as they will still be serving patients that day.
Can anyone attend this event?
Yes! We welcome anyone with a T1D connection to join us for the day. No matter what your age, stage or connection to Type 1 is, we promise you will leave having learned something new and interesting from our line up of incredible speakers. All course cirriculum will be very specific to living with type 1 diabetes.
I/We have food allergies - will there be accomodations?
Lunch will be provided after Breakout #2. We always provide Gluten Free options for our attendees as we recognize the significant connection between type 1 diabetes and Celiac disease. If you have a special dietary request we will do our best to accomodate you!
I have a child/children younger than 5 years old. Can they attend the event?
While we LOVE all of the children in our T1D community, we are unable to provide childcare for children under 5 years old. As the event grows larger we hope to one day be able to have a nursury room available for our youngest family members.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Please email Kelli Raleigh at Rocky Mountain JDRF with any questions. Kraleigh@jdrf.org
