2019


May the 4th be with you!

Kids ‘n’ Us Families facing Diabetes Conference will be held on Saturday May 4th, 2019 at the Chateau Louis Conference Center.

The person with diabetes who knows the most, lives the longest. – Elliot Joslin M.D

This conference is where everyone understands your lifestyle and concerns.  It is an opportunity to update your knowledge about type 1 diabetes (T1D), learn new coping techniques, and network with other families living with the condition.

Speakers and sessions focus on issues that pertain to families dealing with T1D.  Information booths for various corporate, retail, and service sponsors display the latest equipment, supplies, and resources that are available.  The keynote speaker is chosen to highlight innovative and cutting edge research towards a cure or better daily medication management for those with T1D.

Every year, the event evolves and grows in response to comments and suggestions from the previous year’s attendees.
