DiabetesSisters is pleased to announce that registration for the 2012 Weekend for Women Conference opened on January 1, 2012 at 8am. The Conference, a revolutionary national weekend conference designed specifically for women with diabetes, will take place Friday, May 18-Sunday, May 20, 2012 at the Marriott City Center in downtown Raleigh.
The Weekend for Women Conference is open to all 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 2012 Keynote Speaker/DiabetesSisters Inspiration Award Winner is Natalie Strand, MD, 2010 winner of CBS’ The Amazing Race. Natalie along with her friend, Cat, traveled over 32,000 miles to become the first female team to win the nationally televised competition. Natalie triumphed as the first person with diabetes to win the competition.
“I have been looking forward to this Conference all year! Although it will be my third year attending, the topics are always fresh and the speakers are always motivating. Most importantly, being surrounded by women with diabetes who understand my fears, concerns and questions is positively amazing!” said Markee Flint, 2011 Weekend for Women Conference attendee.
