Weekend for Women 2011!

For the second year running, the Brandy Barnes and her team at Diabetes Sisters are getting together for the Weekend for Women in Raleigh, NC, where women with diabetes can get together and share their experiences.  That, to me, sounds like a ladies-only version of CWD.  (Which also sounds awesome.  Diabetes niche groups are where it's at - customized care!)

Here are the details from the site: 

"The 2011 Weekend for Women Conference Planning Committee invites every woman with diabetes to attend the life-changing conference held in Raleigh, NC on April 29-May 1, 2011 at Marriott City Center.  Festivities begin at 7pm on Friday and end at 12:30 pm on Sunday.  Highlights include gender-specific education sessions, a "Celebration of Strength" Dinner Program, highly respected speakers from various areas of the field of diabetes, and lots of opportunities to engage with other women who are living with diabetes. Please also visit the Exhibit Hall to learn about new developments in the field of diabetes.  Reserve your spot now before the Conference is FULL."

I wish this was an event I was able to attend (but honestly, I'll be up to my eyeballs in birthday cake and balloon animals for my daughter's first birthday party), but once again, I'll be missing the 'Weekend.  But I plan to be there in 2012.  So you'll just have to let me know how awesome the 2011 weekend is!


You're the first blog I found today while searching for adult Type 1 blogs! Yay!!

I'll be following your blog and check in for updates.

Thanks for the awareness and all the great info!

Would love to attend this conference, I'll go check out the link.


I attended last year (and guest blogged here about it) and it was the greatest conference I've been to. I've already registered for it again (YAY!!) and I would encourage any diabetic woman to do so as well. If the conference is fully booked, they will be having one on the west coast this fall. I'm super excited for this one!!!

Hey Kerri,

Thanks for letting me know about this once again. I think I'm going to try and attend this year!!

Wish I could go! Even if I could afford the cost, I'd never be able to save up the airfare. I sure hope someone blogs about it. :)

This conference sounds like it could be quite impactful!

I also understand there is an upcoming JDRF summit that will be adressing new advancements in Type 1 Diabetes Research.

I know people that will be attending. Would anybody be interested in hearing news that comes from this summit?

I am also wondering if anyone is interested in following Type 1 Diabetes Research Forum information on this site? Might be informative & interesting!!
Thank You,
