Event Description

For the first time ever Type 1 Talk comes to the Central Valley in conjunction with Diabetes Hands Foundation (TuDiabetes) and the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (CIRM).

Beginning at 9 am, participants will start the day with complimentary breakfast while hearing some of the incredible work of the diabetes patient community in No Sugar Added Poetry. (Books will be available at the event.)

People touched by diabetes and their loved ones are welcome to attend this inspirational event to share and meet with others who live with type 1. Following Type 1 Talk, the program continues with the CIRM Stem Cell Research Update where scientists will present on strides in autoimmune disease research. The program includes a complimentary lunch and an opportunity for patient advocates to talk and share with one another and the group. 100 people are expected to attend from the JDRF, Diabetes Hands Foundation and CIRM networks. The program begins at 9 am and ends at 2 pm. See you there!

I had the opportunity to attend a CIRM research update event last week at UC Irvine and it was fantastic. That one was focused on neurodegenerative diseases and the impact stem cell science is having in modeling diseases like Huntington's and Parkinson's. It was powerful to me to see different patient groups come together. Researchers dedicated to decoding the mysteries of diabetes learn from the work going on in other diseases. And of course, people living with chronic disease have the opportunity to learn and be challenged by others living with different conditions. It seems like the work going on in stem cell research provides an excellent foundation for different patient groups to come together and support research that's going to make a difference in the lives of millions. I heartily recommend attending the Stockton Type 1 Talk + DHF + CIRM autoimmune research program.
