A conference for families and individuals living with diabetes.

About this event

T-1 Today UK presents its annual conference for individuals and families living with diabetes. The weekend is sure to be filled with fun and laughter, some tears and frustrations, education, exciting challenges and cutting edge information.  Join our group of world-renowned clinicians, researchers, consultants and guest speakers who live with T1 diabetes.  Attend educational sessions, participate in group discussions, share your story and help to support and motivate others who are on the same journey as you.  Watch children of all ages become "Friends for Life" and see their excited faces as their bonds develop.  From toddlers to grandparents, from those new to the T1 world to those more experienced, from laypeople to the medical professionals, we will all join together and make new and lifelong friendships.  This is a conference you will never forget and one you will want to come back to again and again and again.

We are delighted to be able to be back to holding an "in-person" Conference after the previous two being Virtual.
