Touched by Type 1 is a conference for women of all ages: Kids, Teens, Young Adults and Adults! The goal is to educate, encourage and empower women of all ages and backgrounds touched by 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 June 24th, at the Fairwinds Alumni Center at 127676 Gemini Blvd. North, 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.
