Mindfulness, Resiliency and Staying in the Moment: Maintaining balance between school/work, family and T1D (type 1 diabetes) • Thomas M. Sterner
Considered an expert in Present Moment Functioning or PMF, Thomas Sterner is the founder and CEO of The Practicing Mind Institute. As a popular and in demand speaker, he works with athletes, industry groups and individuals, helping them to operate effectively within high stress situations. In this session, Thomas will explore how participants can maintain high performance while living with type 1 diabetes. There is constant change and people with T1D (and their caregivers) need to perform 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Thomas will help us to develop the ability to observe thoughts and interrupt worry and learn skills to stay in the moment, especially in high stress situations.
How T1D Affects the Entire Family • Bonnie O’Neil
Hear from JDRF Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter Board Member, Bonnie O’Neil, about the psychosocial aspects that accompany family relationships when one or more loved ones have T1D. Having grown up with siblings with T1D and then watching her own son be diagnosed T1D, Bonnie has a lot of experience with T1D and how it affects each family member in various ways. Even though T1D is a hard disease to manage, Bonnie is excited to share how she and her family have been able to get through it and the steps along the way that have helped them manage.
