Diabetes Events


Contact us to have your event added.


ConnecT1D Retreat is a 1-2 day program for adults and teens with type 1 diabetes. It takes place in downtown Seattle on June 25 and Bainbridge Island area on June 26. Many opportunities will be available to get to know each other better and have one-on-one or small group sessions with our two keynote speakers over the evening and second day. The purpose of the retreat is not fitness, or entertainment or diet or drugs and devices. The purpose is to end the isolation that many people with T1D feel, to introduce them to a community that understands their challenges, that can share what works or doesn’t work for them, suggest diabetes clinics, endocrinologists, CDE’s that have helped them along the way and might help someone else too. Another purpose of the Retreat is to inspire people with T1D to put away old myths they hold about T1D.  Our Keynote speakers, Joe Solowiejczyk and Kerri Sparling with be there side-by-side withy their new friends with T1D inspiring and being inspired.
