Friends for Life Conference

One of the most magical times for people with diabetes and it happens every year in July, with the annual Friends For Life® Conference  at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.  The Dancing for Diabetes team was excited to join over 2,000 attendees and to participate in an even larger way this year, for their 20th anniversay. Dancing for Diabetes Founder, Elizabeth Forest spoke in two separate sessions, to kids and tweens, sharing her story of how Dancing for Diabetes began and the journey it has taken her on ever since. Most importantly, how having Type 1 Diabetes has never held her back!  We taught three dance sessions – to kids, tweens, and teens, and had A LOT of fun! Then spent the rest of the time in the Exhibition Hall sharing the mission and vision of Dancing for Diabetes with hundreds of individuals from around the world!
