Dancing for Diabetes has been spreading awareness about Type 1 Diabetes through the art of dance since 2000. We offer a variety community events to educate the community about the realities of living with Type 1 Diabetes and to raise funds to assist in finding a cure. And for those living with the daily reality of Type 1 Diabetes, we offer a supportive community with many interactive programs and creative resources designed to empower you to live a healthy life. Until a cure for Type 1 Diabetes is found, we continue our work supporting the approximately 1.25 million American children and adults who are affected.
If you, a child or a loved one has been recently diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, there is a lot of important information to digest and you will no doubt be making many updates to your daily life. At Dancing for Diabetes, as part of our mission, we support those with Type 1 Diabetes to live active and healthy lifestyles. At its core, proper type 1 diabetes management is composed of a handful of elements: blood glucose control and insulin management, exercise, nutrition and support. Knowing first-hand the intricacies of living with Type 1 Diabetes, the team at Dancing for Diabetes has created the D BOX – a FREE starter kit providing important resources and supportive materials to help those we serve – thrive with diabetes.
