The Diabetes Research Institute is holding their annual diabetes research conference on Saturday, October 25 in New York City.
Among the usual topics of updated research and technology, there will be sessions on diabetes and exercise, the diabetes police, and diabetes burnout, which brings a more well-rounded look at living with diabetes. There is also an lunch panel with Amy Tenderich and Jeff Hitchcock, among others. After the conference, attendees will be invited to a small cocktail reception where we can meet each other and chat.
In addition, if you are attending this conference and are staying for the evening, I am inviting any and all to have dinner with me after the conference in Manhattan. As usual, I don’t disclose locations publicly, but please contact me at amblass [@] gmail.com if you are coming to the conference and would like more information about a dinner outing.
Although this doesn’t exactly fulfill our dream of having an adults with diabetes conference (don’t worry I haven’t given up on it yet!), it does get us a little bit closer by having a major organization recognize the fact that type 1 diabetes does not just affect parents and children. My hope is that the interest and attendance for this conference will show potential sponsors that a future conference would have a really great turn-out.
If you are in the New York City area or would like to come down for the day (c’mon, it’s the Big Apple! Who wouldn’t?!), please visit their website to register or receive more information. I’ll be attending and I can’t wait to see everyone!
