Hear more about living well with type 1, and keeping our minds healthy.

Join us for our Living Well with Type 1 Diabetes focused Virtual Discovery Event delivered over Zoom.

  • Hear from Daniel Newman, award winning T1 podcast host in conversation with Jade Bryne, actor and comedian talk about living with type 1 and dealing with burn out.
  • Hear from Dr Rose Stewart Clinical Psychologist about her book ‘How to Manage a Mammoth’
  • 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.”
