Pump Trials and Screenings
Insulin Pump Trials
Come to the conference and try a pump or continuous sensor. Pump companies offer would-be pumpers a chance to try their products using saline. And if you already use a pump, here's a chance to try out a new one. A prescription from your physician is required and must include the wording "insulin pump trial with saline." If you plan to try more than one pump, be sure to bring a prescription for each.
This opportunity is by appointment only. Appointments will fill up quickly. For more information, contact:

Celiac screenings will be available beginning on Wednesday and continuing through Friday in Crystal PQ. Sign up sheets will be at registration. You may also walk up for screening when you have time. If you suspect celiac, you must eat gluten for four weeks prior to the screening. One slice of bread per day is sufficient, per Dr. Alessio Fasano, who is overseeing the screening.
Once again this year, a team of eye care specialists from the Institute of Ophthalmology and Visual Science from the New Jersey Medical School will be on site performing free retinal screenings to kids and adults with type 1 diabetes, beginning on Monday and continuing through Friday in the San Antonio room. Pre-conference sign up is required. If you have not pre-registered, stop by the San Antonio room to see if there are available time slots due to cancellations.
