We are hiring our Summer Team Now !

  • Parent Workshop
    November 15, 2018
    6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Welcome to our workshop! We aim to bring you into a connected space of peers and advocates for a few hours, that will bring you confidence and support as we each do our best to help our T1D kids in schools thrive.

Our Kids in School Program is a collaboration with Campaign Chair and outspoken Advocate for T1 students and parents, Lisa Geelen. Lisa recently led a committee of Health Care Practitioners and major diabetes organizations, who took on provincial policy and ensured that diabetes care plans were included.

Topics of discussion include advocating for your T1D child in school, the roadmap to independence, and building a positive One Team Approach.
