Held at various times and locations throughout the state, these programs allow a family to spend time together while learning to face issues related to diabetes as a unit. Family weekends provide diabetes education, nutrition education, psycho-social support, and a chance for kids, parents, and grandparents to get to know their doctor outside of the hospital setting. Family weekends allow kids with diabetes and their siblings to meet new friends, as well as given their parents the chance to do the same. These events prepare kids for the summer camp experience, and teach the whole family, that together, they can handle diabetes.
