2014 Weekend for Women - Los Angeles

2014 Weekend for Women - Los Angeles


OCTOBER 24-25, 2014


DiabetesSisters' Weekend for Women Conference is the destination for the diabetes community's greatest voices, hearts and minds. Past speakers include many well-known advocates from the diabetes community and leading experts such as Laura Young, MD, PhD,  Riva Greenberg, Kelly Close, Rhonda Merwin, PhD, Kerri Sparling, Claudia Graham, MPH, PhD, and Janis Roszler, MSFT, RD, CDE.

The goal of the event is to educate, inspire and transform women's views of diabetes so they can live full, happy lives with the disease. Since the first Conference in May 2010, the event has become the premier forum for women with diabetes, providing peer support and education with topics including new technology, travel tips, pregnancy, exercise, and many, many more. All women with  diabetes (pre-diabetes, type 1, type 2, LADA, gestational) are invited to attend. This year's theme, Stepping Stones, allows us to travel the journey of diabetes together. We all need to find a path when it comes to managing diabetes. Often the first step is the toughest and we hope you will take a step with us!

Of the Conference Series, past attendees have said:

It was such an amazing experience and I am so happy to have been able to attend.  I was so inspired and awestruck by the woman I met and their stories.  It was truly inspirational for me. – Kari

While I hate having diabetes, I love the sisterhood I have gained because of it. – Stacey

Amazing weekend with some amazing people! – Chiara

All I can say is… get yourself to the next conference!!! It was warm, supportive, informational and inspirational. I feel like I have 60 new best friends all living daily with diabetes!!! They all "get it!" – Karen
