Here are the details of the event (which has already occured):

Welcome! Come enjoy a fabulous weekend shared with others just like you…amazing people with T1D from all over the country! Friends and family are encouraged to join!

Why should you come to this fantastic weekend event? Just look at that photo above…wouldn’t you love to be there?! Well that is exactly where you’ll be during this event! (I took that photo on one of the hikes you will have the option of doing.) Of course, also because gathering with a group of people who share the same struggle will likely be a very nourishing experience for you.

This is not a boring conference. It’s going to be a phenomenally fun weekend! Imagine a fantastic vacation with amazing people with Type 1! Together we will explore the beautiful outdoors, via hiking and/or scenic walking, as well as eating and cooking together. During the cooking classes, you’ll enjoy preparing and tasting a wide array of delicious low-carb recipes for you to use when you go back home.

Check out all these great benefits to you!

  • Connect with others who truly understand your life with T1D
  • Learn life-changing tips for how to keep your blood sugar balanced while exercising
  • Exercise outdoors in some of the most beautiful scenery you’ve ever seen!
  • Get your hands dirty and have a blast during our delicious, low-carb cooking classes
  • Gain great new healthy meal ideas and recipes to enjoy once you return home
  • Put diabetes burnout behind you as you return home feel empowered and inspired!
  • Be inspired by learning secret blood sugar balancing tips you might have never learned before
  • Make new T1D friends that you’ll be able to stay in touch with via our Facebook page once you return home!


The entire event will be hosted by me, Dr. Jody Stanislaw, Certified Diabetes Educator and T1D since I was seven years old. (That’s 37 years, but who’s counting?!) I will be sharing many of my secrets for how I’ve kept my A1c between 5.5% – 6.2% for the past 10 years. We will also have the pleasure of my dear friend and fellow T1D extraordinaire Daniele Hargenrader, the Diabetes Dominator, joining us and presenting as a guest speaker. Throughout the weekend, you will learn many of my top insights for how to achieve excellent blood sugar control, many that perhaps you’ve never even heard before.

I hope to meet you in person here in Sun Valley, Idaho, June 9th – 11th!


WHEN: Friday, June 9th – 11th, 2017…feel free to come early/stay late! Bring your friends and family too! It would be great to have at least one of your biggest supporters join so they can be on the same page with you once you return home. Besides, this area is one of the top destination resort towns in the country! It’s pretty hard not to have a fabulous time here. You can read more about this fabulous area by clicking here.
