I Challenge Diabetes is excited to announce our 2nd Annual Family Workshop in partnership with The Charles H. Best Diabetes Centre.
Participants are invited to join their peers living with T1D for the day.
Parents will enjoy our interactive style workshop, with some of the top leaders in our community, and will leave with tools and resources to effectively navigate school and life with T1, and make important connections with other families.
