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.
DiabetesSisters also offers a program for partners of women with diabetes: the Partner's Perspective Program. Held in conjunction with the Weekend for Women Conference, partners will have the opportunity to learn from leading experts in the field on how to better support women with diabetes. Topics include information on types of diabetes, glycemic index, and the emotional aspect of diabetes.
