Sleepovers and Parties
Melissa Ringley and Barbara Schreiner

Whether you're a girl or a guy, parties and nights away from home are some of the best times as a teen. They do pose some challenges, though, if you have diabetes... or if there is someone in your group with diabetes. Learn how to anticipate some of the problems and head them off before they happen. And bring your ideas and stories to share. Have you had a great party? We want to hear about it! This session is sponsored by Animas Corporation.

12:00 noon - 1:30 p.m. Lunch Break in Fiesta 6-10

1:30 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.

Sex, Drugs, and Rock-n-Roll ...
Presenters: Richard Rubin and Stefan Rubin

... and lots of other things that are there to tempt teens in school, at parties, and in the media. Time for some honest and open discussion with Dr. Rubin and Stefan. No parents allowed. It's time to talk about how you're dealing with these things. Your ideas could help others! And don't worry -- your parents won't be told what you say.

2:45 - 3:15 p.m. Snack Break in Fiesta 6-10

3:15 - 4:30 p.m.

What Are Your Parents Worried About?
Presenters: Natalie Bellini, Rick Philbin

Complications. Whether you have diabetes, or whether you're a brother or sister, you've heard the word umpteen times and you don't want to talk about it. The truth is, complications do happen to some people, and they are more likely to happen if you don't take care of yourself and keep your blood glucose levels in range. Natalie and Rick want you to understand why you need to be concerned and take charge now. Session sponsored by Animas Corporation.
