Of Continuing Interest
Join us in Pasadena, California, July 17-21, as hundreds of CWD families join in the 3rd annual conference, Friends For Life: Pasadena 2002. There will be educational sessions for everyone, young and old, whether you are a child or adult with type 1 diabetes, a family member, or a diabetes health care provider. Best of all, enjoy watching the children participate in conference sessions and some very cool social events, interacting, learning, and having fun with other children who face the same challenges each and every day.
