The TypeOneNation Summit is a free, educational and networking opportunity for the T1D community. The summit brings together T1D Experts to share their knowledge on the latest treatments, breakthroughs in research, and the psycho-social aspects of living (and thriving!) with T1D. Our event will feature a research update, a keynote address, multiple breakout sessions, as well as unique opportunities for children and teens to meet and spend time with each other.
