Who is the Parent Program for? 

For Veteran T1D Parents

If you're a veteran diabetes parent, you'll learn how to package management and relationship skills for internalization by your child. We focus on the critical skills, the timeline and behavior changes to ensure the future health, wellness and independence of your child with diabetes.


For Parents Just Starting Out


We focus on the basics - what you need to know about diabetes, learn the key skills to help your child, and how to execute a diabetes management plan. We also deal with the emotional and relationship dynamics that can have a profound effect on the health and happiness of a child with diabetes.
