For those of us who can’t attend the amazing TEDxDelMar conference on type 1 diabetes, we still have the opportunity to see it live. You can access the Tedx channel from TEDxDelMar’s website http://www.tedxdelmar.com or from TED.com http://www.livestream.com/tedx
The theme of the conference is searching for a cure for type 1 diabetes, and leading researchers and clinicians in the field will be discussing their work. The event takes place on October 15, 2011 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST.
During the conference, we’ll be posting updates on ASweetLife’s Facebook page. Please join us there and share your thoughts!
