Parent Info workshop: The first day of camp (Monday July 9th) we will be having a Parent Info Session with some fantastic guest speakers!
9-10am: Join passionate parent advocate Lisa Geelan and Kira, a VP with the TDSB in a discussion on how to keep type 1 kids safer in schools. Lisa is the founder of Coffee’s on Me! an organization she started herself to bring more awareness to Type 1 Diabetes. Currently Lisa has been working hard with several projects including ICD’s Kids in School project and making strides to include Type 1 Diabetes in school board policies! Coffee is provided!
10am-11:15am: Dr. Abitbol, an endocrinologist at LMC will be discussing his current research. There will be an opportunity following the talk for a more informal Q&A session.
These sessions are designed to give parents an opportunity to connect with other families experiencing similar challenges in an atmosphere of understanding and support.
This workshop is a free event, please register for this event so that we can send you relevant information about the workshop.
York Sports Camp Day Preview. We can’t let the parents have ALL the fun! While you are attending the Parent Workshop from 9-12, your child will have the chance to take part in our Diabetes Sports Camp at York’s Tait Mckenzie Athletics Centre. They will join other campers, some living with Type 1, some not, and our ICD leaders as they challenge themselves to balance sport and diabetes management. Your child will have full diabetes mentorship and support for the morning, the same way all our campers are supported throughout our week long camp. Want more fun!
