Here is the info for the event at the end of this month :)

Hi Melody. No, I haven't. I checked their website, but didn't see anything about it. Could you give me more details? I've tried to contact the diabetes action network too, but haven't heard anything back. Any tips?

Hi Cora! Nice to meet you! :)

JDRF Ottawa is hosting an event at the Science & Tech museum on Nov 30th. It's about families and coping with diabetes - have you heard about it?

Hi Kanata Boy and friends, I'm a bit late to the party - I'm in Stittsville. Thanks for the info about the DAN.

Thanks KB. Wow, you are really a Newbie. Sorry that you
gained Diabetes. Hopefully your Dr. is up on Diabetes care. If you have any questions...please feel free to ask or put your question in the Type 2 forum or on the main page, so others can help also.

Love this weather! Hopefully you are enjoying the day.
