San Diego, Calif., Sept. 23, 2021 – Buckle up T1D passengers! TCOYD’s Dr. Steve Edelman and Dr. Jeremy Pettus –two California endocrinologists living with type 1 diabetes–are taking you on a virtual joyride packed with medical tips, lifestyle tricks, and humorous anecdotes about managing T1D! And by joyride, we mean colorful vintage cars, convertible tops down, and go pros capturing the action as the docs cruise down the California Coast discussing all things diabetes. Looking for a list of must-have diabetes supplies? Curious about the latest T1D research, including information about the COVID-19 booster shot for people with diabetes? How about hearing from endocrinologists who have had T1D for over 50 years and still manage to screw up? Plus a diabetes pizza challenge and carpool karaoke with an original song about living with type 1!
We’re breaking down what you need to know as a T1D in 2021 through this interactive, edu-taining, free virtual experience connecting thousands of type 1s from around the world. Get real advice from seasoned experts—many who are living with diabetes—including motivating personal stories from NTT INDYCAR SERIES Drivers Charlie Kimball and Conor Daly. Family, friends, and caregivers of T1Ds are also invited to learn what it's like for your T1 on a daily basis.
“This is an extremely unique and one-of-a-kind empowering experience,” said TCOYD Founder and Director Dr. Steve Edelman. “Instead of just telling type 1s about the latest developments in diabetes and discussing tips for daily management, we’re showing them through our edu-taining videos and candid conversations.”
Join the adventure now to witness the highs, lows, and everything in between as we tackle what it means to live with T1D in 2021.
