Ypsomed is excited to announce our new virtual learning series, ‘T1 Connects’, developed specifically for the needs of Australians with Type 1 diabetes. Join us via video chat to hear from a range of healthcare professionals, patients as they discuss various topics relevant to people living with Type 1 diabetes.
These sessions are being offered through Zoom to enable you to stay home during the Covid-19 pandemic while keeping up to date with your diabetes care and options.
The sessions are free to attend but registration is required. You can attend one or more sessions depending on what topics you’re interested in. Once you register, we’ll email you a Zoom link providing you with access to the entire series – joining is as simple as clicking on the web-link we provide. You don’t have to have a Zoom account.
Turning on your video is entirely optional! If you’d just like to listen in and watch our presenters, that’s absolutely fine. But if you’d prefer a bit more of the community feel, then show us your face and feel free to ask questions!
The first session in the series, ‘Type 1 Diabetes and Self Isolation will take place Tuesday 19th May. All sessions will go for about 45 minutes some time at the end for additional Q&A by the audience.
