Are you the parent of a school-aged child or younger living with Type One Diabetes in Texas? Are you looking to network and meet other families living in your area. If so, please send me a message and let me know what area you are from so that I can give you information on how to join your local Type One Family Network. There is no reason for any of us to ever feel alone!

Hi Everyone! For those of you at all near San Antonio, there will be an all day Type1Today conference on February 9 that you won't want to miss! Deadline for RSVP is almost up so take a look at to find out more info ASAP. I'll be speaking at one of the sessions and attending many of the other ones. You can contact me with questions or the website should tell you all you need to know.

Hope to see you there!
