Young adults living with type 1 diabetes are invited to the Young Adult Conference 2020: Presented by the Breakthrough T1D – Beyond Type 1 Alliance 

Join us and other young adults living with type 1 diabetes for a weekend of networking, learning and encouragement.  

The weekend at a glance:

  • Participate in breakout sessions and discussion groups with your peers on topics that matter most to you 
  • Interact with our lineup of powerful speakers and insightful sponsor representatives 
  • Explore T1D career opportunities, network with professionals, and discover opportunities to get involved in the T1D community 

Why the Young Adult Conference matters: 

“It was incredible to learn about the research being conducted to improve lives and cure T1D as well as meet others like myself. I grew as a person and reaffirmed that I want to make a positive impact on others in whatever profession I end up in.” – Ashley, YAC Orlando 2019 Attendee 

The Breakthrough T1D – Beyond Type 1 Alliance combines the power of  JDRF, the leading global organization funding T1D research, and Beyond Type 1, the organization with the largest online community of any diabetes nonprofit. The Young Adults Conference provides the opportunity to establish confidence with your T1D, find the support you need, and build a network of lifelong friends.
