I spent the evening at our first omnipod info session at our facility in Pasadena and it was so great to see people with type 1 talk about life living with type 1 in a positive way, laughing as well as being informed through each others experience. Made me think why there is not any get togethers for type 1? There sure seems like a need.

No luck on meetup.com. I even searched the Ann Arbor, Toledo areas.
GIRLFRIEND!!!

CREATE YOUR OWN GROUP!! I HAVE! Everytime I try to get it moving I run into a health issue but create your own group on meetup....Why wait for somebody else. There are people in need everywhere.

I would just ask that you make it a DIABETIC GROUP and not just TYPE 1 Group. Nobody gets a gold star for being a TYPE 1 vs a Type 2......

I would be more than happy to help with this!!!
I looked a little bit about doing this and there is a monthly subscription fee of at least $12 a month. If it wasn't for that I would start a diabetes group.
I started a group sponsored by the JDRF, Liz. No fee for that.
In NYC, Beth Israel Hospital has a T1 group on every SECOND Tuesday of every month.
Hey, you should start one:) We have one in PA every 3 months
