I just wanted to pop over to TuD quickly to share an experience that I'm still reeling from, from the weekend! Last Thursday - Sunday I joined ~45 other Type 1 adults in Haliburton, Ontario (Canada!) for a weekend that exceeded my every expectation. As hard as it is to believe, I actually feel like I got the chance to meet and get to know each of those 45 individuals learned something from each of them that I could never have learned from a diabetes clinic or my endocrinologists office.
After a weekend of snowshoeing, skiing, sitting around a campfire chatting, eating delicious food, playing a competitive game of Diabetium (like Cranium, but all diabetes!) I came home thoroughly exhausted.
People have been sharing their experiences here: http://bit.ly/hjFXwV for anyone interested in reading more.
I was wondering what experience other adults have had with non-clinical diabetes education. Has anyone else been to an event that made them think totally differently about the ways that we (adults in particular) are continuing to learn about diabetes? I would love to hear some stories and to get some new perspective/other people's ideas so we can continue to grow/expand/reach new limits in our own education (here in Canada, at least!)
