Children With Diabetes
What: The Children With Diabetes website is a leading destination on the Internet for families dealing with diabetes, a Web resource for parents of children with Type 1 diabetes, and is dedicated to helping you find the information and support you need and in caring for a child with diabetes.
Family Support Group
What: This group is for families and children who live with T1D. Events are family oriented where the children have fun while the parents can talk and share stories and advice. If you want to talk to someone who knows what it’s like to care for a child with T1D, we do! This group gives the caregiver a chance to interact and talk with other caregivers, but also gives children with T1D a chance to interact and play with other children who have T1D.
When: The group meets every three months.
