What to expect

Following the success of and overwhelming response to last year's event, we will be hosting the second Talking About Diabetes (TAD) event on Saturday 22 April 2017. Please join us for a series of inspirational and empowering talks at the TAD 2017 event. Here you will have the chance to engage with several high profile speakers whose lives have been impacted by type 1 diabetes (T1D) and hear first-hand, the challenges and successes they have experienced. This day is for anyone who wants to learn more about the achievements of others with T1D and be confident that the condition is not a barrier to great success. For families, each family member must be registered individually. Once registration is completed you will receive an email confirming your place.
