There's just one week to go until the Friends For Life: Pasadena 2002 annual conference. 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. There's still time to register -- sign up today!
Of Continuing Interest
- Come to the Pasadena 2002 conference and try a pump! All four pump companies -- Animas, Disetronic, Medtronic MiniMed, and SOOIL -- will be offering this great opportunity for potential would-be pumpers. Anyone interested in wearing a pump (with saline) may do so Thursday and Friday at the conference. A prescription from your physician is required and must include the wording "insulin pump trial with saline."
