Detailed Session Descriptions

Opening Keynote

  • In this Mission Message, you’ll hear the latest in JDRF’s quest to turn type one into type none by advancing research and development in priority areas including artificial pancreas technology, beta cell encapsulation, restoration, and others.

  • Advocacy & Insurance – In addition to dealing with the disease itself, people living with T1D also have to manage a variety of issues such as navigating insurance, rising insulin prices, and advocating for diabetes. This discussion will help participants in dealing with these issues.

Session I

  • T1D: A Family Diagnosis - Maybe it’s you or your child diagnosed with T1D. Who ever it is T1D dosen't just effect one person- it's a family diagnosis. Dr. Shara Bialo, a pediatrc Endocrinologist with Nemours Childrens Hospital and a life long T1D, is your guide to help navigate T1D as a friend or family member.

  • JDRF PEAK (T1D Performance in Exercise and Knowledge)- We know exercising when you have T1D can be difficult. In this session JDRF has teamed up with local experts to offer information on how athletes can demonstrate exercise safety while managing T1D.

Lunch Session

  • Lunch is provided in the Atrium with a variety of options including Gluten Free and Vegetarian. But lunch isn’t just a time to refuel. Network with other T1D families and exhibitors specific to T1D management and wellness.

Session II

  • Taking Diabetes to School– This panel session is designed for parents of T1Ds of school age, and will include practical topics such as 504 plans in schools, communicating with school nurses, legal rights of children with T1D in school and navigating extracurricular activities.

  • Adulting with T1D – This panel will provide their experiences and tips when it comes to issues specific to adult T1Ds. What happens after high school when you become responsible for your T1D? How do you talk to your professors, friends or colleagues about your T1D, handling sick days and so much more.

Sessions and speakers are subject to change.
