Hey Kayla,

I'm attempting to use Tudiabetes as a way to connect with fellow young adults with diabetes. I'm a senior at the University of South Florida and president of the school's chapter of "Students with Diabetes." We're hosting a national conference June 1st - 3rd in Tampa and want to bring in as many Type I diabetics (18 - 30yrs) as possible from across the country!

The conference costs $55 dollars total, which covers housing, food, & activities like Busch Gardens. It should be a lot of fun (we did something like this last year and it was great-- like a very condensed diabetes summer camp)! Please let me know if you are interested in any of this.. I'm easy to get in touch with.

You can also visit the SWD website for more information:
www.studentswithdiabetes.com

If you can make it out, I'd love to meet you and I know it will be such a good experience!
