Hi Meghan! Well, my stats show there are 4 people in here... but two are silent! Who else has joined us?

Registered User meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 08:56:57 PM EDT 2005
don't know....

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 08:58:23 PM EDT 2005
I imagine it will be a pretty low-key chat tonight. I sprung it on everyone at the last minute. Just wanted to get some conversations going about the various conferences. They ALL deserve to be discussed... not just the summer one! (although it IS world famous...)  Grin 

Registered User meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 08:58:41 PM EDT 2005
is anyone else here? I show 5 people....

Registered User Heidyn type 1  (164.106.22.58) Tue Sep 20 08:58:53 PM EDT 2005

Hi Brenda!

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 08:59:45 PM EDT 2005
Hi Heidyn. Yep - you're here. How are you tonight?
Hey Brenda. Aren't you watching House with Jeff?

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 09:00:49 PM EDT 2005
So - I guess I should minimally introduce the chat. Basically, it's a free for all - any topic, any question, any suggestion - relating to one of the conferences is fine to bring up. Otherwise, I'll just throw out topics and ask questions and similarly talk to myself...  Grin 

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 09:02:00 PM EDT 2005
As a starter... the conferences for 2005 just finished up, with the San Diego Focus on Pumping conference. It was one of my favorites to date. Very excellent group of adults and kids (and presenters and sponsors). If you attended, your feedback would be helpful.

Registered User Brenda H.   (216.68.227.251) Tue Sep 20 09:02:12 PM EDT 2005
Re: next summer's Conf., are there more restaurants in the hotel for lunches and stuff? Or, is CWD providing all lunches this time?

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 09:02:24 PM EDT 2005

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 09:02:55 PM EDT 2005
You don't like the Pepper Market, Brenda?

Hi Stacey

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 09:04:52 PM EDT 2005
CWD always provides lunches for the conference days (Thurs, Fri). The Renaissance Orlando Resort doesn't have a ton of restaurants. What we are working on with them are sandwich kiosks (with sandwiches, salads, etc.) that will be in the hotel common areas, out by the pool, etc. There are also a lot of restaurants nearby. It's right by International Drive if you remember that area... all the fast food places, plus some sit-down restaurants. You'd need a vehicle.

Registered User Stacey mom to Jesse dx.12/01.... pumping 4/28/03  (24.199.90.39) Tue Sep 20 09:05:06 PM EDT 2005
Can I just ask you experts a non conference rekated ???. Jesse is untethering and forgot his lantus at 6:30ish.Is it ok to give it now, or just use old pump basals???

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 09:05:44 PM EDT 2005

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 09:06:02 PM EDT 2005
Hey Momma Bagel!  Smile  Are you coming to the conference this summer? I heard a rumor that you might not be.
Hmmm. I don't know Lantus protocol.

not sure if we can swing it this summer.. with 2 in college, and jesse wants to go to Camp Joslin...
Unless you give scholarships to people who like purple???

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 09:10:48 PM EDT 2005
Hi Deb  Smile 
I'd love to do a conference in St. Louis. We work pretty exclusively with Marriott properties, and I've sent requests for proposals to St Louis and they've opted not to bid on our conference. Not sure why. I'll continue to try, though! Right now we are booking conference for the end of 2007 and into 2008!

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 09:11:15 PM EDT 2005
What is the Isla de Mujeres...in cancun?

Registered User Julia Mom to Ethan  (64.12.116.5) Tue Sep 20 09:11:19 PM EDT 2005
Other food and restaurants sound good. Are some in walking distance?

Registered User Wendy type 1/pumper  (71.1.59.222) Tue Sep 20 09:11:31 PM EDT 2005
Hi Julia..ugh Stacey...maybe take up Robbing a bank...

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 09:12:31 PM EDT 2005
Not sure I can deal without the pepper market....

Registered User Julia Mom to Ethan  (64.12.116.5) Tue Sep 20 09:12:42 PM EDT 2005
We do have some scholarships but Purple won't be an option...just first timers

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 09:12:42 PM EDT 2005
I know. It's so hard to fit everything into the summer. Purple scholarships. I'll suggest it.
Julia - I wouldn't walk it with the kids. I'd hop on a shuttle (I'm going to see if we can arrange one or two for Weds during the day) or hop in someone else's van!

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 09:13:59 PM EDT 2005
What are the summer dates? I need to give them to my boss for the time off....

Registered User Julia Mom to Ethan  (64.12.116.5) Tue Sep 20 09:14:07 PM EDT 2005
I know we will need a car this time. Disney is just to convenient for some things

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 09:14:28 PM EDT 2005
The Isla Mujeres is in Cancun. It's a wonderful island where you can spend the day snorkeling, swimming, sailing, biking, hiking... pretty much any kind of sport you can think of having to do with water, they do. As part of the Cancun conference, we'll be pulling together a group to go over to the island on Saturday. The conference sessions are Thurs/Fri. Play on Saturday. Go home Sunday. I'm there. Actually, Natalie and I did this during our site visit, and it was very reasonable and very fun.

Registered User Heidyn type 1  (164.106.22.58) Tue Sep 20 09:15:11 PM EDT 2005
don't want to drive-I need my vacations from driving..

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 09:15:22 PM EDT 2005
Do they have SCUBA diving there?

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 09:15:35 PM EDT 2005
Summer dates: July 19-23. Plan to come at least on the 18th. Focus groups all day on the 19th. Volunteer gathering Tuesday night (the 18th), plus, by request, we'll have a pool night for families on site. The pool restaurant serves fabulous burgers and sandwiches... yum. Let's go now.

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 09:15:41 PM EDT 2005
Heidyn, I may drive to Orlando this summer...

I'm ready!

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 09:16:13 PM EDT 2005
I could stop and pick you up!

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 09:16:24 PM EDT 2005
Heidyn - If you come Weds through Sunday, you won't need to drive anywhere. Everything is right on site. And Saturday's day at Sea World is just across the parking lot. As part of the conference, we serve so much food that you barely stop eating...

Registered User Wendy type 1/pumper  (71.1.59.222) Tue Sep 20 09:16:34 PM EDT 2005
Heidyn needs a year off to recuperate from Disney...LOL

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 09:17:22 PM EDT 2005
They do have scuba in Cancun. Neal was debating whether to bring his stuff, but he decided not to. I think we'll visit some of the Mayan ruins the day before conference, and then visit Isla Mujeres the day after. Then go home. Penniless.  LOL

Stacey - The Philadelphia conference is Focus on Pumping. Some great speakers. Dr. Henry Anhalt will join us (he'll discuss Why We Pump and The Future of Pumping). Also, Gary Scheiner will return as faculty (Strike the Spike, and Preventing Hypos). Rick Philbin will present about Exercise and Busy Kids. Natalie will compare all the new infusion sets on the market. Etc. Lots of new stuff.

Stacey, let's talk. I would love for Jesse to be on the Teen Pump Panel. Sam is on it, Trevor, Monica Lanning. Marissa was on it in San Diego, but she may not be able to come to Philly - college comes first.

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 09:21:47 PM EDT 2005

I may be in the minority, but I loved Dr. Clare-Salazar from the first conference. I wonder if now that people have been to many, they would like more science in addition to the day to day management skills

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 09:22:19 PM EDT 2005

The summer conference will have more science. We've invited quite a few new people. Lots of new topics to hear about. I can't give out names until I have confirmations from the new folks, but I did hear back from Dr. Ragnar Hanas from Sweden, and he will be with us in Orlando. He is absolutely wonderful.

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 09:24:13 PM EDT 2005
Will there be a sports central this summer?

Stacey the camera zoomed to the back of your head?

Ragnar Hanas is a love and he has written an awesome book on Type 1 if you need a great book.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 09:25:15 PM EDT 2005
We are also working in more discussion groups for the kids. They do need a bit more structure than last year. Lots of social time, of course, but definitely some structured discussion time. AND the scavenger hunt for all kids!

Is the science more about prospective cures or the science on the day to day management and why we do what we do....cuttin gedge research..?

Yah. Now that we are coming up on the 6th summer conference, we have to ask: What topics can we have - and who can we invite to speak - that will be interesting to someone who has come to all six conferences? So, I think from this point you'll start to see some new faces, in addition to our tried and true wonderful speakers like Richard Rubin, John Walsh, etc.

I'm viewing the DVD of the proceedings before the FDA Advisory Committee on the inhaled insulin....I'd love to have a speaker who speaks AGAINST it and tells the dangers of it long term.

Yes, a sports central, but smaller (a third the size). Also, outdoor tennis courts, a sand volleyball court, and outdoor basketball. I realize it's dreadfully hot during the day outdoors, so I wouldn't expect these things to be used at those times. Perhaps in the evening or morning, though.

Registered User Stacey mom to Jesse dx.12/01.... pumping 4/28/03  (24.199.90.39) Tue Sep 20 09:29:07 PM EDT 2005

Scavenger Hunt will probably be contained in the Exhibit Hall, but not limited to sponsors. More like what you all did for the regionals. Lots of fun questions and tidbits of information. With 200 kids in each age group, we really need to keep it confined to the exhibit hall.

Registered User Adam Austin 10  (67.158.79.150) Tue Sep 20 09:30:12 PM EDT 2005
Hey Ellen, that is an interesting idea, but I am pretty sure subsidiaries of Pfizer already advertise on this site

One thing that Dr. Wendy Satin Rapaport has done in group coping skills diabetes meetings, has been ROLE PLAYING where the kid plays the parent and the parent plays the kid. Some interactive sessions like that may be helpful.

Adam, I haven't seen a Pfizer ad here.

Teen dance will be on Friday night this summer. Probably a dinner-dance event. This will be after the all-day offsite (likely to Islands of Adventure) on Friday. The teens will have to participate all day Thursday in order to join the off-site on Friday.

This is true about the hunt, Laura. I don't want to race after 25 kids....it would be fun, but tiring

Adam they can't do that - it's not approved for use - it's in clinical trials.

Ellen, do you remember Joe Solowiejczyk from this summer's conference? He is excellent with teens, role-playing, parents who are having difficulty with their kids and with diabetes management. He's going to do something along these lines. Also Bob Bulgarelli will be doing workshops all day long, both days. He's working on topics/format now.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 09:35:51 PM EDT 2005
Hi Bernie.
Yes, we will be breaking down the kids groups into much smaller, more manageable groups. Think in terms of working groups of 10 or so for teens. A bit smaller for the younger kids. We will need LOTS of volunteers.
The call for volunteers this year will be for half-days, not single events. It's too hard to keep track of volunteers who come and go as quickly as the kids do between sessions. We need more stability.

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 09:36:45 PM EDT 2005
You have me, Laura...I am your slave!

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 09:36:55 PM EDT 2005
Stacey - The kids took a vote, and Islands of Adventure won. There are some water rides - the kids can get soaked if they want to. Also, I am meeting with the manager of the park and we will work out a pass system so the kids don't wait in long hot lines. Otherwise, we won't do it.

Registered User Wendy type 1/pumper  (71.1.59.222) Tue Sep 20 09:37:00 PM EDT 2005

Would love to have way more with the young adults... especially now that our teens are young adults! Marissa, Carolyn, Meghan. When will Zack be 18? I am looking for some young adult leaders! Many of the adult sessions will be interesting for the young adults - and very appropriate - however there may be some discussion time or social activities that the young adults want to do that I need to get on radar. Any young adult volunteers out there? Meghan, put your hand down. I need you on kids.

I'd like to see the young adults be 18-25 or so. College age. Or 'just out of high school or college age.' Close enough in age to share a lot of the same social and work challenges.

Oh - btw - on another topic (slap!) - Joe Solo is going to do a chat on October 19 about managing things with our own teenagers. It has a very long title. I think he'll present similar info at the summer conference. He is going to be very involved with CWD from now on.

Stefan Rubin is not really a young adult anymore. He's a delightful regular adult like the rest of us!  Smile  I'm going to ask him to use his talents with a different group this summer. He's a dad himself, and he enjoys working with other dads. I am really looking for some 'true' young adults to take leadership of this age group now. It works much better that way.
Oh, also, we'll be having the sibling discussion groups by age group this year - elementary, tweener, and teen. I know those were very obviously missing last summer. Lots of people (lots of kids) asked for them back. They'll be there.

Well, while we're picking on Meghan, she doesn't drive well in blizzards either.
48? Hmmmm. I'm 47... so we are either old young adults or young old adults. Rolling Eyes 
I don't know which celebrities the companies are bringing. They usually work that out closer to the conference date and let me know. I don't think Hamish will be coming again. He is in Australia with his family.

How would you all feel about Karaoke on Thursday night after the 'banquet proper?' The teens will have an open gym from 9-11. I need to find something fun to do for the rest of us. Can either do something with a DJ a la last year at Disney, or could do a karaoke and then dancing evening. We want to end a little earlier (say, around 11). With a midnight ending, it's really late when people get back to their rooms and to bed, and then everyone is dragging the next morning. We want the kids fresh. The adults can drink coffee.  Grin 

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 09:54:09 PM EDT 2005
Hi Connie - Just chime in when something about the conference chat interests you and you have a question! Those are basically the only ground rules. Other topics have to go to other chat rooms! Smile

Maybe for Meghan's sake there could be a speaker on driving safety with diabetes. Now Heidyn, I'm certain you don't change your site while driving. Wink 

Registered User Heidyn type 1  (164.106.22.58) Tue Sep 20 09:54:53 PM EDT 2005
Ellen, I never change my site
so you're right there

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 09:54:54 PM EDT 2005
I could do that talk...what not to do, and what to do?

Hey in a traffic jam it is possible. Ellen...

Karaoke would be fun.

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 09:55:23 PM EDT 2005
karaoke works....or a dance....disco, perhaps?

Registered User Stacey mom to Jesse dx.12/01.... pumping 4/28/03  (24.199.90.39) Tue Sep 20 09:55:31 PM EDT 2005
I think the younger teens would like the karasoke too. Last summerr, they liked the DJ better than the teen dance, I think that at 13-14, they were a bit intimidated by the older kids and the bumping/grinding that was going on...lol..

Registered User Ellen (FL) Zack 17, dx'd 1989, pump  (64.12.116.134) Tue Sep 20 09:55:43 PM EDT 2005
The ballroom dancing lesson was a nice touch last year

Registered User Heidyn type 1  (164.106.22.58) Tue Sep 20 09:55:51 PM EDT 2005
something not to old
and not too young.. Cool 

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 09:55:54 PM EDT 2005
I'd be happy to see Hamish back in the U.S. His family was unable to leave Australia the last time I talked with him (it was awhile ago, though). He didn't want to leave them. He has young kids.
ACTUALLY... there will be a speaker talking about driving.

Registered User Stacey mom to Jesse dx.12/01.... pumping 4/28/03  (24.199.90.39) Tue Sep 20 09:56:34 PM EDT 2005
square dancing??

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 09:56:59 PM EDT 2005
how about a speaker on not hiding? and how to be discrete, but not ashamed?

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 09:57:01 PM EDT 2005
Ballroom dancing will be back. Double session on Friday afternoon. We're going to use the teen space since they have a built-in dance floor in their meeting room and they will be offsite on Friday! Michael Kendrick offered to come back and REALLY teach us how to dance! Who's in?

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.77.155) Tue Sep 20 09:57:28 PM EDT 2005
I love to square dance....swing your partner round and round, pick 'um up and throw them down...

BTW, I never get tired of hearing Will Cross speak. He's such an inspiration.

Will Cross was fantastic also

I like the idea of square dancing too

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 09:58:59 PM EDT 2005
Any age would be welcome at the karaoke. The teen social activities are a challenge. We have the 15-17 year old kids, and yes, they definitely bump and grind. And date. And smooch. This is one of the reasons we had a definite lower limit of 13 for the teens (insurance was another reason). However, some 13 year old kids, and some 14 year olds, are not ready for this. And some most definitely are.

Registered User Stacey mom to Jesse dx.12/01.... pumping 4/28/03  (24.199.90.39) Tue Sep 20 09:59:40 PM EDT 2005

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 10:00:43 PM EDT 2005
Yep, Will Cross was great. So was Michael Hunter. And Jay Hewitt. The sponsoring companies try to mix it up a bit - so I'm not sure who will be with us this summer. If we keep repeating the same people, it gets old. Besides, the companies re-do contracts each year with the celebrities who represent their products, and that determines somewhat the pool of people they can bring to our conferences.

Registered User Wendy type 1/pumper  (71.1.59.222) Tue Sep 20 10:00:52 PM EDT 2005
How old is Jesse Stacey?

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.19.14.29) Tue Sep 20 10:02:37 PM EDT 2005
Wow. I thought I'd be talking to myself all night (well, maybe Meghan would've kept me company). Thanks for the great chat everyone. It's 10:00 so that chat officially ends. But I'll be online for awhile longer. I enjoy talking to you all! And we will have a monthly conferences chat from this point on. Feel free to email me privately as well if you think of conference-related things you want to discuss in between these chats!

If your computer is unhappy, sometimes it helps to turn the whole thing off, then turn it on again. It clears the bugaboos.

Pool party is Tuesday night. There is a huge pool deck, an equally large grassy area (where we'll be giving out volunteer shirts and assignments)... and a great pool bar and grill.

I'm not sure a square dance for 1,500 people would work. Seems like too big of a crowd.
