What’s it all about…
If you are a person with diabetes or love someone with diabetes, you live with this disease 8,760 hours each year.
How many hours are spent with a medical team talking about diabetes? One hour? Two hours?
Those precious hours talking with medical professionals are usually not spent asking about how to deal with the perceived social stigma, disclosing diabetes to your colleagues or dates, intimacy issues, fears about complications, or dealing with everyday life. Most appointments talk about the numbers (lab results, blood glucose results, medication changes) and you’re left to muddle through on your own.
You may get support elsewhere: the Diabetes Online Community and all the wonderful resources found online, local support groups, but there has never been a multi-day conference where you can talk about anything and everything related to your life with diabetes.
No keynotes. No multiple tracks where you have to make a choice between sessions. Just your peers – those who live with diabetes every day like you – talking about the things that matters most to you that you can’t talk about with your medical team or those who aren’t impacted by diabetes.
We create the agenda. We decide what’s important. All of us participate. All of us learn. All of us become confidantes and compatriots.
That’s why The Diabetes UnConference was created.
