Kids 'n' Us is an informal full day conference intended to provide practical information and support for children, teenagers, parents, and caregivers living and working with type 1 diabetes (formerly known as juvenile diabetes).  This conference is where everyone understands your lifestyle and concerns.  It is an opportunity to update your knowledge about T1 diabetes, learn new coping techniques, and network with other families living with the condition.


Speakers and sessions focus on issues that pertain to families dealing with type 1 diabetes.  Information booths for various corporate, retail, and service sponsors display the latest equipment, supplies, and resources available.  The keynote speaker is chosen to highlight innovative and cutting edge research towards a cure or better daily medication management for those with T1 diabetes. 


The conference is hosted as an Outreach Program of the Edmonton Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, with support from the healthcare professionals of the Stollery Pediatric Diabetes Education Centre.  Every year, the event evolves and grows in response to comments and suggestions from the previous year’s attendees.  

The person with diabetes who knows the most, lives the longest.
