Transition Webinars


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Diabetes Hope Foundation developed a Wellness Webinar series focused on the health and wellness of transitioning youth with type 1 diabetes. The webinars provided invaluable information and resources for youth with T1D, their families and their caregivers. After an overwhelming response to our Wellness Webinar series, DHF launched our Campus Diabetes Club conference webinars (‘Don’t Sugat Coat it’ and ‘Pump the Love’) as well as our ‘Get Transition Ready’ webinars. In order to provide accurate information that youth and their families need, all of our webinars feature youth experts living with T1D and professionals working in the fields of health care and post-secondary school. Covering a broad range of topics, DHF’s Transition Webinars are an invaluable resource for anyone seeking information and guidance on maintaining their overall health and wellness during transition and beyond.
