The Friends For Life: Pasadena 2002 annual conference is this week. 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. If you're interested in attending, you can register at the door for the entire conference, one day, or just for the exhibit hall.
