We are a group of young adults 18-35+ years old living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) who have joined together in a community to share our stories, experiences, and lives.
Thank you Judy Darcy for paying tribute to Young and T1 in a statement to the BC Legislature! – April 7 2016
Advocating For BC Government to Expand Insulin Pump Coverage to All Ages
Hello everyone! Our campaign for the BC government to fund medically necessary insulin pumps for T1Ds of all ages is well under way. On April 21st 2016, four YT1 members & Opposition Health Critic, Judy Darcy met with reporters to share our personal stories, why we think pump coverage shouldn’t suddenly stop at 25 years of age, and how Young and T1 is launching this campaign to take action. Look for our press conference in the news!
Since then, over 50 YT1 members have joined our campaign and showed their support by emailing local MLAs about this issue and sharing their pump stories in video interviews. We are closer than ever to convincing our government to drop the age restriction on insulin pump coverage and provide fair medical coverage for all British Columbians living with T1D.
If you would like to get involved in this initiative and have your voice heard, please email email@example.com and sign our online petition. Thank you for all your support and make sure you join the Young and T1 Facebook group to stay up to date on our campaign. #fairhealthcarebc
