I'm using Tudiabetes as a way to connect with fellow young adults with diabetes. I'm a University of South Florida student and president of our 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, but we can't pay for your plane ticket (housing, food, & activities like Busch Gardens are, however, included in the price). Please let me know if you are interested in any of this and/or visit our website for more information!

Live life to the fullest!!!
