TCOYD (www.tcoyd.org) and DiabetesSisters are nationwide non-profit organizations with similar missions of motivating and educating people with diabetes. In an effort to reach more people living with diabetes with our combined messages of self-advocacy, motivation, and education, TCOYD and DiabetesSisters are partnering in 2010 to bring a unique, life-changing learning experience to women with diabetes. The First Annual Weekend for Women Conference hosted by DiabetesSisters and TCOYD will begin at 5pm on Saturday, May 22nd (immediately following the TCOYD Conference) in Raleigh, North Carolina and end at 5pm on Sunday, May 23rd. The Weekend for Women Conference will take place at Marriott City Center in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina. All participants will receive a single room at the hotel.
Weekend for Women participants will attend educational sessions on gender-specific topics related to diabetes treatment and care (such pregnancy, body image, journaling, nutrition), speak one-on-one with other women who are living successfully with diabetes, receive unbiased information on the emergence of new equipment and medications, and learn new tactics for improving their mental and physical health. Participants will also relax and rejuvenate on Saturday evening through one (1) complimentary session in the “Sweet Suite.” To kick off the educational sessions on Sunday, the seated breakfast will feature an entertaining and inspirational speaker, who shares something from her own experience of living with diabetes.
The Sweet Suite: Relaxation. Rejuvenation. Ready to LIVE with diabetes.
After a day of learning and exploration at the TCOYD Conference, women will relax and rejuvenate. From the moment they walk in the door of the Sweet Suite, women will find themselves immersed in luxury. Weekend for Women Sweet Suite services are focused on providing women with diabetes the personal attention they deserve from a team of highly trained professionals. From the therapeutic touch of a skilled massage therapist to nourishing benefits of facials, the Sweet Suite offers a variety of services to help women with diabetes enhance their personal well being. Each registered participant of the Weekend for Women Conference will receive one (1) complimentary session of her choice to be redeemed in the Sweet Suite between 5pm-10pm on Saturday evening.
Now you can see why I am SO excited! Doesn't this sound like an event you deserve to attend???
