CWD 2012: Need More Input!
Last year, Scott and I were lucky enough to be part of the Children With Diabetes "Friends for Life" faculty, and part of our role was to help create a track for adults with type 1 diabetes to attend that made us feel like we were getting support and information that suited our unique circumstances - you know - not kids with diabetes, and not parents of kids with diabetes (for the most part), but adults (for the most part again ;) ) with type 1.
Looking forward to Friends for Life 2012, Scott and I are, again, trying to compile some feedback from last year's conference to help shape the program for next summer. And this is where you come in:
What kinds of sessions would you like to see offered next summer? Be specific - did you enjoy the parenting with diabetes session? The emotional breakout with Jill? The pregnancy discussion? Do you want more on technology? More about advocacy, both online and off? More art therapy? What, in your opinion, would be a stellar session for adults with type 1?
I understand that not everyone attends the FFL conferences, and that a lot of the time it comes down to financial assistance and time off from work. Brainstorming ideas to help with getting more people to the conference is definitely a huge focus, but for the purposes of this post, it would be awesome to hone in on the session topics, speakers, and concepts that you think the type 1 adult community would benefit from. (Phew! That sounded so formal. You know what I mean.)
So we're looking for information. Perspectives. Need more input, Stephanie!! Your feedback is crucial, and very much appreciated. Thanks, you guys.
Edit: And if you have feedback you'd prefer to email to me, feel free. :)
