What is Thriveabetes?
WHO WE ARE
We’ve been inspired by the following quote:
“Peer-to-peer support fosters resilience and confidence. It turns our shared vulnerability into empowerment and we can gain strength from the place we normally feel weak.” — Kim Vlasnik, “Texting My Pancreas”
Thriveabetes is a conference organised completely by volunteers living with or affected by type 1 diabetes, and seeks to Inform, Motivate, and Inspire you to thrive with type 1 diabetes.
WHAT WE DO
We hope to build on the amazing energy this conference tapped into by running another conference and by working to help connect and invigorate the type 1 community.
This idea is more than just a conference. We want to help connect people to the type 1 diabetes community, building a safe and supportive place to gain strength from something that otherwise makes us feel weak.
