Friends for Life Fall 2021: A Week of Virtual Celebration family!  It’s VIRTUAL, 9-14 November 2021.

Does your diabetes need a boost? A little revitalization? Come join the CWD team for our Friends for Life Fall 2021, where the focus is on a week of celebration leading up to World Diabetes Day on November 14.

At Friends for Life Fall 2021, our team will bring families like yours the science-based information you need from the world-renowned speakers in the diabetes community, to help you thrive with diabetes. Tuesday night will open with a keynote presentation on the discovery of insulin. On Wednesday we’ll get back to basics with Diabetes 101 and Carb Counting. Thursday brings our psychologist for discussions on the impact of technology and getting support. On Friday we will focus on advocacy. Saturday is about diabetes technology. Sunday will be a celebration of 100 Years of Us! Each day will include open hallways for casual connections, an info desk for questions, and time to visit with our amazing sponsors in the exhibit halls.

The conference may be virtual, but the friends are for life!
