Young Adults with type 1 just girl
Hear inspiring stories and get tips and advice from other young people who know the challenges you face as a young adult living with type 1.

Join us for our Young People with Type 1 Diabetes focused Virtual Discovery Event delivered over Zoom. You’ll

  • hear from young people living with type 1 and their parents
  • listen to some truly inspiring stories from these young people
  • hear how clinic transition from paediatric to adult can be a positive experience
  • virtually meet other families and individuals affected by type 1 diabetes, and
  • hear the latest progress in type 1 diabetes research.

Our three previous Virtual Discovery Events have been 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.”

JDRF supporter, Andy from Edinburgh living with T1D for 15 years
