Vancouver Looping Meetup and Build Party!

screen-shot-2019-07-29-at-9.54.11-pmThis is a Vancouver-area build party for people who want to build an OpenAPS or Loop system to help manage their diabetes. Existing Loopers are welcome to drop in and contribute their expertise and/or update their rigs.

Please register with this Eventbrite to get a ticket as space is very limited https://www.eventbrite.com/e/vancouver-looping-meet-up-and-build-party-tickets-66988437219

Please note that this is NOT an information session. All information regarding looping is available online (see below for relevant links). Instead, you will need to come prepared to build your system and that means sourcing the correct parts and bringing them with you to the event. We have created this event well in advance so that you have enough time to find everything you need. Please read the information below carefully, it will explain what you need. And of course, if you have any questions or need help please feel free to reach out to the event organizers: Ben (b.mammon[at]gmail.com) & Nadine (nadine.pedersen[at]gmail.com).


10:00 NightScout website build (for people who have yet to build a NightScout website or need help troubleshooting their NightScout/Heroku set ups).

11:00 OpenAPS and Loop builds (for people who have a NightScout website and are ready to build their closed-loop system).

* Food & beverages to share with the group are most welcome but not mandatory 🙂

* Feel free to show up anytime throughout the day although you may not be able to get help if you show up too late.

Young and T1 succeeds in advocating for universal Insulin Pump expansion  across 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.

    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.

  3. 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”

  4. Thank you Ron! We’re thrilled with the opportunity to help the T1D community
