This year Diabetes Youth New Zealand is having its AGM in New Plymouth on Saturday May 10th - with lots of assistance from the wonderful group at Diabetes Youth Taranaki. This has evolved into a 2 day conference with the emphasis very much on family participation. The full programme has yet to be developed, but expect to see talks from specialists from throughout NZ on such things as Transition to Adult services, psychological aspects of living with Type 1 diabetes in children and young people, pumping, coping with sports and diabetes, carbohydrates, camping, and lots more. There will be plenty of opportunity for interaction, panel discussions, question time and of course the all important conference dinner and networking time. We are trying to keep registration costs to a minimum to allow families to attend. Child care WILL be provided. More details will be on our website www.diabetesyouth.org.nz soon, but feel free to contact me if you require any info in the meantime....we welcome any suggestions.
