Where T1D families come for support, information and education













How It All Got Started

Living with Type 1 Diabetes isn't easy.

What can make it a little easier is surrounding yourself with people who understand. There is a lot to learn and technology is constantly changing requiring constant attention to the latest medical news. Berks County is in need of support for the Type 1 Diabetes community.

Our support group meets monthly on the third Thursday of every month at the Sinking Spring YMCA. We begin at 7 p.m.

We encourage you to bring your family, because we know that when someone in the family lives with type 1 diabetes, the whole family lives with type 1 diabetes. We have a separate meeting room for adults and children. We felt this was important so that the parents of T1Ds could interact with other parents and adult T1Ds and speak freely. And concurrently, the children gather and mingle (supervised) with other T1Ds and T1D siblings. This is a great opportunity for them to see that they are not alone.
