The ConnecT1D Adult Retreat
Clearwater Resort in Suquamish, Washington
SAVE THE DATE: June 23rd - 24th, 2018
Has a cupcake ever saved your life? Us too! The ConnecT1D Adult Retreat is all about tapping into a community of people who get you. Come spend a weekend with us as we live it up doing fun activities--all related to promoting social connection and emotional wellness while living with T1D.
The ConnecT1D Adult Retreat is an opportunity for people with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and their partners (T3s) to come together for a weekend retreat in Suquamish, WA (just a ferry ride away from Seattle) to learn, share and connect around the experience of living with T1D. Through humor, compassion and honesty, national and local speakers will lead workshops on a variety of topics addressing the psychological and social aspects of the unique life that is living with this chronic condition. Guest vendors will share the latest technology, devices, resources, and services in the T1D world and allow hands on opportunities to see the latest T1D management tools.
SAVE THE DATE! The next ConnecT1D Retreat will take place June 23rd-24th, 2018! Check back in for more details and registration info. Even better, sign up to receive updates so you don't miss out!
The second annual 2017 ConnecT1D Adult Retreat (aka diabetes camp for grown ups) happened!
If you were there, we are so happy to have you as a part of our community. If you were not there, well, let this be encouragement to join us next year!
It all began with a ferry ride to Bainbridge, followed by a welcoming and meaningful keynote from Mike Lawson. Then there were workshops on research, technology, how we define ourselves and push ourselves. We learned, laughed and got to know each other. After dinner, some danced at the casino, others played games by the fire and some just relaxed in the really nice digs at the Suquamish Resort. The next day early morning yoga was followed by breakout sessions to share about life with T1D. There were raffle prizes galore at the weekend wrap up. We got to know each other even better and had to say goodbye to new friends. What stays is a sense of belonging to a community that gets us. Until next year, stay connected!
