Isn’t it time you gave yourself a pat on the back for all you do, more learning in a fun setting, and the joy of mixing with your ‘diabetes sisters?’
That’s exactly what’s waiting for you at the 2nd annual DiabetesSister’s (run by the powerful, gentle Brandy Barnes) “Weekend for Women”.
Friday evening April 29 to Sunday afternoon 1 PM, the conference takes place in Raleigh, North Carolina, a little hotbed of diabetes activity.
The conference is open to gals-only (sorry guys) type 1 and type 2s and features sessions & workshops that deal with issues women care about: body image, pregnancy, spirit, strength, menopause, monitoring, cooking and moving, relationships, sex and self-acceptance. You’ll find quite an age range and people from around the country.
Gloria Loring, steamy song stylist from the ‘70’s, now mother of a child with diabetes and advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Ann Albright, a Director at Center for Disease Control, are key speakers.
I’ll be conducting a “flourishing with diabetes” session Saturday night after our ‘Celebration of Strength’ dinner and many other experts are on board.
So come for a run, some fun and what most of us enjoy most of all, mingling with those who walk in our heels.
Here’s the agenda. $100 covers the entire cost of the conference including meals. Registration is open to the first 200 registrants, but don’t delay. Last year registration closed six weeks early, so make your booking now. Then come up to me at the event and say hello.
