Experience how you can meet other young adults with type 1 and make valuable personal connections. DYS Connect is not your typical support group. Connect offers year round activities and many fun programs just for teens and young adults high school through college managing type 1 diabetes. These young adults make friends for a lifetime who understand the challenges they may be facing. Connect is great support system that allows these young adults to have a blast together, but use each other as resources to better manage their diabetes.
The program includes a variety of activities all over our service area. We host fun events, such as kayaking, paintball, holiday parties, and our annual Winter Retreat. The program is designed to get the participants to make valuable personal connections while having a great time doing it!
