DiabetesSisters Weekend for Women Conference

Almost 2 years ago, I heard about a wonderful non-profit organization called DiabetesSisters.

The purpose of this organization is to offer a range of education and support services to help women of all ages with all types of diabetes live healthier, fuller lives. DiabetesSisters understands the fear and isolation that often comes with living with diabetes because we are an organization that is managed by women who are living with diabetes.

DiabetesSisters recognizes that emotional and peer support is vitally important to a woman’s overall wellbeing. Through DiabetesSisters’ education and support services, women form a special bond and can freely share information, helpful tips, and stories of hope.

After hearing about the Weekend for Women Conference from two women who have previously attended, I decided to attend this year as well. The conference is outside Washington, D.C. the last weekend of April. I cannot wait to attend! I’ve been told that attending this conference is life changing!

To find out more about this conference, please visit my page at http://2014wfw.kintera.org/washingtondc/jbean_2. Donate if you’d like, too! You can also visit http://www.diabetessisters.org for more information about the organization.
