More Info

JDRF Illinois is hosting Davis Knight, Founder, DiabeticSAVVY, for an event geared towards adults living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) focused on food and nutrition.

Davis is a former Executive Chef specializing in healthcare and special dietary needs. After 10 years of transforming food programs from the stereotypical, monotone and bland meals to foods full of color, flavor and appeal, his life and relationship with food changed when he was diagnosed with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes in 2018.

With his livelihood in question, he became determined to redefine the role of food in his life, personally and professionally. Davis now owns and manages DiabeticSAVVY, LLC., a media company that creates content supporting the diabetes community through food education, conversation and empowerment.

This event will be a great opportunity to connect with other adults managing T1D, ask questions, and learn more about food, nutrition, and cooking.

If you are interested in joining, please register in advance.
