In 2017, DiabetesSisters partnered with TDC to expand programming with a joint conference in Alexandria, VA. The event included the DiabetesSisters Weekend for Women and the TDC Diabetes UnConference, welcomed more than 150 attendees, and provided diabetes education and support for people with diabetes in a respectful, nonjudgmental environment. Partners and caregivers joined a special educational track to learn more about chronic illness and better ways to offer support to those living with diabetes.
"The joint conference weekend in 2017 enabled our organizations to reach more people living with diabetes and provide important, necessary information for them," said Anna Norton, DiabetesSisters CEO. "Our collaboration was unique in bringing together multiple segments of the diabetes community. Along with the rest of our community, we will miss The Diabetes Collective. The organization stressed the value of the patient voice."
DiabetesSisters continues its commitment to providing support and education to women living with diabetes through online and in-person programs, thanks to the leadership of its Board of Directors.
"We are grateful for the collaboration between DiabetesSisters and The Diabetes Collective," said Donna Rice, Chair, DiabetesSisters Board of Directors. "Our Board is committed to growing our organization's infrastructure and development of our staff."
