Off to College Conversation

August 11, 2019, Dallas, TX
2:00 pm

Join JDRF Greater Dallas Chapter for an "Off to College" conversation and panel discussion focusing on the transition for teenagers with type 1 diabetes (T1D) into college life and independent adulthood.


SMU Meadows School of the Arts - The Owens Art Center

Endocrinologist Dr. Heidi Shea, along with Certified Diabetes Educators (CDE) will lead group sessions to discuss the medical considerations of transferring from a pediatric endocrinologist to one specializing in adult care, at the same time as leaving home. Guests will also hear from a panel of current students with diabetes and their parents sharing what they have learned during this transition. Students and parents will then be separated into breakout sessions to discuss topics such as talking to RA’s and roommates about diabetes studying abroad, and handling alcohol and parties.

Off to College Conversations is sponsored by Dexcom, Medtronic Diabetes and OmniPod.
