5:30-6:15 p.m.

Diabetes Connect is a network for children with diabetes and their families to connect with others on the same journey. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month (October-April) from 5:30-6:15 p.m. Groups are currently planned through the end of 2021.

Living with type 1 diabetes is not easy, whether you are newly diagnosed or have had diabetes for several years. The Children’s Minnesota Diabetes Connect group is a safe space for children and teens who are living with type 1 diabetes to connect with one another.

Each month focuses on a different theme. Children will explore this theme through age-appropriate conversation, art, music, movement and creative interactions. Child life specialists and music therapists offer children and teens the opportunity to learn, explore, and gain understanding about a variety of diabetes management topics.

Please note: You only need to register for your first session, not each time you plan to attend. You’ll receive an email with information to join the Teams meeting after registering.
