What are T1D Chats?
T1D Chats are for all indivduals and families touched by type 1 diabetes who want to get together with other individuals and families going through similar experiences. The purpose is to provide an informal setting for people to talk to one another. T1D Chats are held locally by JDRF Greater Iowa Chapter volunteers.
