For those that have attended this past years TCOYD day long event Sessions, what subject matters did you find most 'Insightful', Helpful,Inspirational, Best in suggested Practices, Promising for Diabetes 1 and/or 2 regiments, eating practices, excercise, monitoring, controlling…??????????? The sessions were subdivided for Type 1 vs 2. The team of staff under Dr. Steven Edelman for over 15 years now brings 1000s of Diabetic attendees together, and provides educational professional speakers along with top notch service/food/diet/exercise providers like nobody else in the USA. Google it if not aware of TCOYD. Thank you Steve and crew this past year for the information share at such a reasonable price. For me, it was in San Diego last weekend. Great Great Day

Thank you for sharing, I will look them up. I have been T1 for 32 years and there is always something new or different to learn or even helpful tips from others that you never thought of. I know that it is time for a refresher course. Just wondering if they will ever be coming to Michigan??

Angie, 100% agree with the great 'information' one can access on line gain via an endocrinologist, as regimently do myself. TCOYD brings to conferences Doctors, and practioneers that share best 'practices' that is over and above current traditional disciplines that Diabetes 1 & 2 experience in common. Allot of the valued information was from hundreds of attendees with the speakers on 'how to' better manage your Pumps, CGMs, Exercise routines, Eating routines and habits, Sleep…
Personally, discovered that one Endocrinologist's ways and means is Good, necessary, and recommended. Hearing these interactive workshops from numerous Diabetics with common challenges is not available in one office and/or 5 publications of reading. Steve and staff provide Diabetics a $n/c newsletter via onsite site of TCOYD.com . Interestingly Steve Edelman's passion in cascading othe latest Diabetes 1&2 information as a Diabetic 1 for 40 years, learns allot himself, from these Forums, I am told. Beyond the prior, I do not respect what most dieticians prescribe in the way of 'food' types/mixes.

I've never been to one and just briefly looked it up Michael. I "get" the eating practices, exercise, monitoring, controlling in an environment with fellow diabetics. However, I've been Type 1 diabetic for 25 years and been through all the training(several times) and dietitians. If it's more of an educational Seminar/Session I don't see what it can bring differently than what my endocrinologist tells me about the breakthroughs in diabetes. I would hop on a plane now for the next one if you have something in this YCOYD that is "different" or invaluable. Most of us know about exercise, diet, and the importance of control.

I LOVE TCOYD. They are the ones who put on my diabetes education class and it helped me so much. It was a 9 week course, 2 hours a week. I have never been able to attend any conferences though, so I am afraid I cannot offer any input there. But the organization is great and I find them very empowering.

With your knowledge you could teach the class. I went to two of their classes because they handle the diabetes education class. I got conflicting information. I will never go again.
