ConnecT1D Adult Retreat
April 22-23, 2017
Clearwater Resort in Suquamish, Washington!
Has a cupcake ever saved your life? Us too! The 2nd annual 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.
