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.

Upcoming events:

Getting Pumped on a Patio!!

An evening of networking with professional cyclists living with diabetes 

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 (join us on Facebook!) and here at www.youngandt1.com . Spots are limited, please RSVP by July 4th through the link when it is posted!

Press Conference

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.

    I imagine Judy Darcy is thrilled that the younger people are speaking out on a healthcare issue. T1Ds should be marching in the streets over this issue and other issues such as the despicable treatment of people on welfare who don’t even get enough money for food or shelter. We can prevent poor health with preventative measures such as forcing employers to pay adequate wages to cover the cost of food, energy, housing and information services and bringing in a meaningful pharmacare programme that covers everyone’s costs when they develop a living threatening illness such as t1d.

    This is a spectacular website you Young and T1’s and your supporters have developed. Your determination to advocate for pump support from the Ministry of Health beyond the age of 25 in BC is a vital healthy step in the right direction for T1’s and should be readily supported by all MLA’s as it will reduce overall provincial healthcare expenditures for years to come. As well, you most certainly display a dynamic activity based image for all of T1’s.

    Truly impressed;
    “55+ years as a T1 and a Pumper for over 15 years”
