Event description

Description

This is a peer-led conference, designed and organised BY people living with (different types of) diabetes, FOR people living with diabetes.

We are a local group called the Sugarbuddies and after the success after our last conference specifically for people with Type 1 diabetes (The One Conference) we thought we would host another conference but this time people living with any type of diabetes!

This event is a chance to explore and discuss common questions that we have, get some tips from others and have a chance to network.

This event is for adults living with any type of diabetes or parents or partners of people living with diabetes.
