If you know me, you know that I’m kind of a “yes” girl. Even if it pushes me out of my comfort zone, I have said, “Yes!” This time is no different.
On Saturday, February 29, 2020, I will be spending the day with hundreds of other families living with Type 1 Diabetes. Why do you ask? I have been asked to co-host this year’s JDRF TypeOneNation Summit! It is an honor to be asked and although I’ve got the butterflies-in-the tummy feeling, I have given our local JDRF office a resounding, “Yes!”
Let’s do this!
Let me tell you. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the JDRF TypeOneNation Summit. It has become one of my favorite events of the year! It is super informative. It’s my go to for the most recent Type One Diabetes research updates. We get to listen to uplifting keynote speakers. We get to select from a great number of in-depth breakout sessions that are applicable to us ranging from clinical trials, insurance updates, to PEAK (T1D Performance in Exercise and Knowledge) which is JDRF’s new fitness based program.
Some of you who have been to my Adult T1D Talk Lounge Sessions in the past have already asked, “Why is this not an option this year, Cut the BS Girl?” Here’s the inside scoop: This year, we’re changing it up with something a little different called, T1D Table Talks, where I will be facilitating the Adults with T1D table talk. If you’ve been to my T1D Talk Lounge in the past, this will have a similar feel, but will have grown to a whole room of people doing it at different age groups and different topics! Yasss!
If you or someone you know has Type One Diabetes and want to connect with others with T1D including myself click here and sign up!
I look forward to seeing you there and remember to Cut the BS! (I mean blood sugar.)
