Join us for our Type 1 Diabetes, Food and Nutrition focused Virtual Discovery Event delivered over Zoom. You’ll
- hear from Steven Ponder, creator and Author of Sugar Surfing, Paediatric Endocrinologist, who also lives with type 1 himself
- listen to Paediatric Diabetes Dietitian, Aisling Pigott Jones for advice and tips
- virtually meet other families and individuals affected by type 1 diabetes, and
- hear the latest progress in type 1 diabetes research.
Our first three Virtual Discovery Events were awarded 4.7 out of 5 stars*.
“These virtual discovery events are terrific, I have such fun, love the speakers, the engagement, and I have never felt so close to the type 1 community at large.”
