Type 1 Friends Support Group 

Join Type 1 Friends and build friendships through diabetes. Parents, children with diabetes and siblings are all welcome. Adults and children alike will be able to network and gain valuable information. Parents, learn about babysitters and caregivers, school and other advocacy issues, family coping skills and more. Children will benefit from education, gain autonomy and, most important, have fun!
