Children With Diabetes “Friends for Life” Anaheim 2016 Conference

If a child in your family has Type 1 diabetes[1], then you may be interested in attending the Children With Diabetes “Friends for Life” conference, taking place September 16–18 in Anaheim, California.

The event, which will be located at the Disneyland Hotel, will include top experts in the diabetes field, children who have diabetes, and their families and friends, all coming together to “make new and lifelong friendships.” There will be discussion groups, scheduled presentations and educational sessions, and various other social and informational events.

Registration for the conference is $150 until September 4 and $175 onsite after September 16 for everyone age 6 and over at the time of the conference. (Children five and under are $50). The registration fee covers conference attendance, shared meals, social events, and one conference t-shirt.

Rooms at the Disneyland Hotel are available for the conference for $202 plus tax and can be reserved until August 24, or whenever the room block is filled, using the online reservation system[2].
