The children (T1s and non T1 siblings) are grouped in their ages as at 27 October and enjoy fun-filled educational sessions with experienced team leaders while the adults attend their own sessions. The weekend is sure to be filled with fun and laughter, some tears and frustrations, education, exciting challenges and cutting edge information. If you have not already registered, why not join us to hear from Doctors, a Dietician, Psychologist and guest speakers who live with T1 diabetes and who have achieved great things, watch the children of all ages become Friends for Life and see their excited faces as their bonds develop. From toddlers to grandparents, from those new to the T1 world to those more experienced, from laypeople to the medical professionals we will all join together and make new and lifelong friendships. This is a conference you will never forget and one you will want to come back to again and again and again. Hotel accommodation is NOT included in the registration fee and you do not have to stay at the Beaumont to attend although the majority of the families do.
