Touched by Type 1 is a conference designed to educate, encourage, and empower kids, teens, and adults who are impacted by or have a connection to type 1 diabetes. The conference is sponsored by Dancing for Diabetes.
The TrialNet team has been invited to participate at this conference event beginning at 9:00 am on Saturday May 18th, at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando, FL.
We will be screening family members for type 1 diabetes risk through the Pathway to Prevention Study. Participating involves a simple blood test that could detect an increased risk up to ten years before symptoms appear. Those that test at increased risk may be eligible to participate in a prevention trial or ongoing monitoring. Screening is offered at no cost to relatives.
Not attending the conference? Call 877-343-2377 and we’ll send you a kit for screening at a lab close to your home or help you locate a nearby TrialNet site. Email Annie Abraham for more information.
