The Joslin Clinic DO IT program in Boston, MA

Hello Everyone,

I just joined this diabetes community website this morning and can't believe all the information I have at my fingertips! Thank you for sharing!

Little about me... I am a recently diagnosed type 1 as of October 31st (Halloween, I know, right?)

Did the Joslin Clinic DO IT program last week for 4 days and feel like I now have everything I need to stay healthy.


Welcome aboard Mike, I’m new to diabetes too and have learned so much here!

Ahhhh, I have thought about going to Joslin. I live in the UK but sometimes feel I need a bit more specialised information. Any thoughts on Joslin, I’d be interested. Thanks

Thanks for the Welcome Lilli. Yes, so much to learn but once you have it you're on your way!

Linda, the DO IT Program at the Joslin was the best thing I could have ever done. I was there for 4 days (Monday — Thursday) all day. They covered EVERYTHING and answered any and all questions. I was with a group of 15 type 1 people from all ages and locations. We had one woman from Vermont was has had type 1 for over 50 years... She received a medal from Joslin. Another woman came all the way from Anchorage, Alaska and was very glad she did because she learned so much in those 4 days that she couldn't get in Anchorage. They have another DO IT coming up in March & April.
