We’re already preparing for our TypeOneNation Summit coming up on Saturday, March 30, 2019 at the Carnegie Science Center. Join us, along with other families, individuals, and caregivers affected by type 1 diabetes at all life stages for a day of education and connection.
Presented by Allegheny Health Network, you will have the opportunity to talk to experts about research advances, attend our diabetes vendor fair, and participate in motivational and educational breakout sessions that are important to you. So far, we have already confirmed multiple speakers, including social media influencers Paloma Kemak (@GlitterGlucose) and Jillian Rippolone (@t1dchick).
Our keynote speaker this year will be Chris Ruden. Chris is an elite Powerlifter, entrepreneur, model and motivational speaker– despite his congenital birth defect leaving him with only 2 fingers on his left hand and a shorter left arm. 19 years into battling his physical situation, he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. But for Chris, losing is not an option. In January, Chris will be starring on the upcoming NBC television show, The Titan Games, hosted by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Don’t forget to save the date—you do not want to miss this!
