As it has for the past eight years, Take Control of Your Diabetes (TCOYD) is holding nationwide conferences on type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Notable speakers in the diabetes community, including health care providers, prominent researchers, and inspiring athletes, come to the conference to speak on a variety of topics. This year’s sessions are about diabetes devices, such as CGMs and insulin pumps, and a review of the latest treatment options for type 2 diabetes. The conferences also have health screenings for glucose, cholesterol, and A1c, and attendees can spend one-on-one time with diabetes educators, dietitians, podiatrists, physicians, and ophthalmologists to get answers to specific health questions.

The mission statement of TCOYD says that every person with diabetes has the right to live a healthy, happy, and productive life. TCOYD works toward this goal by educating and motivating people to be more active in their healthcare. These conferences are also great opportunities to meet other people who have diabetes and learn from their stories. Kelly Close, our Editor-in-Chief, will be joining a panel at the Santa Clara TCOYD conference and we hope to see you there. To learn more about TCOYD you can visit TCOYD’s site. –MN
