Event Description

The goal of the Weekend for Women Conference is to educate, inspire, and transform women's view of their diabetes so that they can live full, happy lives with the disease. Since the first Conference in May 2010, the event has become the premier forum for women with diabetes.
The weekend-long Conference is open to women with all types of diabetes age 18 and older. Participants will attend educational sessions on gender-specific topics related to diabetes treatment and management, engage with other women 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.
The Partner’s Perspective Program is open to partners, spouses, and significant others of women attending the Conference. The goal of the program is to better equip partners of women with diabetes to fully engage in their partner’s disease management. Chris Barnes, Partner’s Perspective Program Manager said, "As partners of women with diabetes, we really do want to better understand their disease and how to best support them so that they can live full lives with diabetes for many years to come. The success of last year’s program illustrated that this valuable program is filling a large void that has been overlooked for many years.”

I WILL be there! I went to the one in 2011, which was held in San Diego, and had a great time. It's unbelievable to be in a room with 100 other women, and know that they ALL have diabetes. And then when you go back to the real world, you wonder where the magic went, LOL!! I recommend this conference, if there's ANY way you can make it! :-)
