Be sure to stay with your group leader!

Discussion Group for Kids with Type 1 Diabetes
Facilitators: Betty Brackenridge, Marissa Hitchcock, Malcolm Lazarow and Monica Lanning
Location: Palani Sailfish

Most people don't understand what it's like to have diabetes ... all the things you need to do and keep track of in order to stay healthy. There are some good things about having diabetes, too! You take good care of yourself, and you probably know more about your body and how to keep it healthy than most kids your age, right? Marissa and Monica are your group leaders. They both have diabetes. In fact, they've had it since they were very little. They understand what every day is like for you and they'd love to talk with you about it! Come join them (and Betty Brackenridge, who is one of the best listeners in the world).

Siblings' Discussion Group
Facilitators: Sarah Lanning, Richard Rubin
Location: Walu Breakout Room

This is the opportunity for brothers and sisters of kids with type 1 diabetes to speak their mind. What are your challenges every day? What do you worry about? Is there anything that scares you? What would you like to change? What are you proud of? Join your buddies for some great discussion!
