A couple of weeks ago, the Thriveabetes Organising team met to kick off planning for our next Thriveabetes Type 1 diabetes Conference. The new organising team has members from its foundation as well as a couple of new faces. Have a look at our About the Team page on our website for more information on all of us and our connection to diabetes.
When and Where
Without further ado, we would like to announce that the next Thriveabetes takes place on:
Saturday October 19, 2019
The Red Cow Hotel, Dublin
Registration will open for Thriveabetes in May 2019.
What is Thriveabetes
Thriveabetes is a conference for people with type 1 diabetes from ages 5 to 105 years and it’s organised by people living with type 1 diabetes.
This Type 1 Diabetes conference will focus on the psychological impact of living with a chronic, lifelong condition. We aim to provide “Inspiration, Motivation and Information” to all people living with type 1 diabetes (adults, parents & children).
Who is Thriveabetes for
Anyone living with type 1 diabetes: Adults, Children, Parents, Partners. Anyone!
We create separate programmes for each of these groups;
Adults with Type 1 Diabetes
This includes Type 1, Type 1.5 diabetes (also known as LADA).These sessions are open to Partners, Spouses and Significant Others also
Parents/Guardians/Carers of children or young people with type 1 diabetes.
Teens and Young adults aged 13+ years up to 18 years
Children aged 9 - 12 years
Children aged 5 - 8 years
Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate any children younger than age 5 years.
All programmes are run separately.
We have just begun to delve into creating the programmes for the specific groups and will finalise and publish it on our website in early March 2019.
How much will it cost?
A conference like Thriveabetes costs a significant amount of money and we are very proud to say we have found a sustainable funding model that allows us to continue to organise conferences. However it does mean that we charge delegates €40 each which does cover a hot lunch and your refreshments for the day.
The remainder of the cost of Thriveabetes is subsidised by our exhibition, ads in our conference booklet and by time/services provided for free by our team of dedicated volunteers.
