Teens Taking on T1D

September 28, 2021
7:30 pm

Teenage years can be a tough time, and diabetes brings extra challenges. This monthly teen meetup group provides teens, ages 13-18, an opportunity to connect, share tips and make new friends. Sessions will begin virtually, and transition to in-person in the months ahead in each area of our chapter territory. Additional details below.

More Info

This group is an opportunity to build connections with peers who also have T1D while participating in fun social activities throughout the chapter territory. It’s also a great way to learn from each other and share helpful and practical information about life with T1D.

Our focus will be on fun, making lifelong connections and offering support to teens whether you are newly diagnosed or have had T1D since you were a little kid. Our facilitators all grew up with T1D and would have loved the opportunity to connect with others and now wish to help make that happen for you!
