2014 Parents Symposium

Unanimous satisfaction

As satisfaction rates approach 100 %, it is safe to say, and with no exaggeration, that the event was a resounding success. More than 200 participants, parents, children, and healthcare professionals gathered at the Centre des sciences de Montréal on May 24, 2014, to attend conferences, to join in discussions, and to share their knowledge on themes related to Type 1 Diabetes, including service dogs, nutrition 2.0, diabetes at school, transition care from childhood to adulthood, as well as daily health. Children had access to various workshops and activities on site.

Conference speakers included psychologist Jean Paré, keynote speaker and athlete, Chris Jarvis, as well as IRCM researchers, Dr. Rabasa-Lhoret, and Dr. Huot. Participants shared their appreciation of selected speakers and themes, opportunities for discussion, chosen venue, and overall symposium organization.
