Get Ready To Take A Leap 

As teens finish high school and move on to the next stage of life, they have many new experiences waiting. If they have type 1 diabetes, they may also face extra challenges.


If they’re moving away from home for the first time, they’ll face these challenges with less help from their parents. Diabetes care often suffers when teens and young adults begin to make complicated decisions on their own, have less structure in their day, and have increased responsibilities. Good care during this time is very important.


Help Teens Make the Leap

Help teens manage their diabetes when they move away from home. Learn how.

Self-Care Webinar 
Are you being selfish when you take care of yourself? With all of your responsibilities, do you feel guilty for experiencing joy when others aren’t happy?
There is a common misunderstanding that self-care is selfish. Self-care is taking care of yourself so that you can help and take care of others.  It benefits you and everyone in your life!
Join us as we take a deeper dive into Self-care as an Intervention for Overall Well-Being with Dr. Crystal Murillo.  Dr. Murillo is an Assistant Professor and Director of Clinical Simulation at the University of South Carolina College of Nursing.

Let’s work together to reimagine self-care as nourishment for your mind, body, and spirit on September 16th at 10 am.
