We are a group of young adults 18+ years old living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) who have joined together in a community to share our stories, experiences, and lives.
Getting Pumped on a Patio!!
Join Young & T1 and Diabetes Canada for an inspirational summer evening over a hosted reception, patio drinks, and a beautiful view from the False Creek Yacht Club. Let’s celebrate the recent expansion of insulin pumps to all ages in BC together, and bring your questions for one another.
Hear from a Team Novo Nordisk Pro Cycling racer who has type 1 diabetes, about how they continue to compete and chase their dreams. Meet new friends and expand your type 1 diabetes community. All type 1’s are permitted to bring a loved one / type 3!
Registration link will be posted shortly in the Facebook event (add us to Facebook!) and here at www.youngandt1.com . Spots are limited, please RSVP by July 4th through the link when it is posted!
Young and T1 succeeds in advocating for Insulin Pump expansion to all ages in BC!!
We are so thankful to Health Minister Adrian Dix for the recent announcement of universal insulin pump expansion across BC. This is something we have been working towards for years now with amazing partners such as Diabetes Canada and Minister Judy Darcy. Thank you to everyone who supported our efforts and the many Young and T1 members who wrote to their MLAs to voice their opinion! We are so thankful.
