Adelaide T1D meet-up 

JDRF would like to invite children living with type 1 diabetes, together with their families, to join with us for a fun morning at SA Aquatic and Leisure Centre at Marion.

The event will offer aquatic activity, followed by lunch and a valuable opportunity to engage with others from the T1D community, form friendships, and meet the event sponsors from device companies AMSL, Medtronic, Ypsomed and Insulet to learn about the latest diabetes technology available.

Participants will enjoy a one-hour WIBIT session (giant floating obstacle course), followed by free time, then lunch on the concourse between 12.30pm and 1.30pm.
