Weekend for Women 2011!
For the second year running, the Brandy Barnes and her team at Diabetes Sisters are getting together for the Weekend for Women in Raleigh, NC, where women with diabetes can get together and share their experiences. That, to me, sounds like a ladies-only version of CWD. (Which also sounds awesome. Diabetes niche groups are where it's at - customized care!)
Here are the details from the site:
"The 2011 Weekend for Women Conference Planning Committee invites every woman with diabetes to attend the life-changing conference held in Raleigh, NC on April 29-May 1, 2011 at Marriott City Center. Festivities begin at 7pm on Friday and end at 12:30 pm on Sunday. Highlights include gender-specific education sessions, a "Celebration of Strength" Dinner Program, highly respected speakers from various areas of the field of diabetes, and lots of opportunities to engage with other women who are living with diabetes. Please also visit the Exhibit Hall to learn about new developments in the field of diabetes. Reserve your spot now before the Conference is FULL."
I wish this was an event I was able to attend (but honestly, I'll be up to my eyeballs in birthday cake and balloon animals for my daughter's first birthday party), but once again, I'll be missing the 'Weekend. But I plan to be there in 2012. So you'll just have to let me know how awesome the 2011 weekend is!
