Welcome to Type 1 Diabetes Lounge - Image

We are a nonprofit organization with local meetings held in Wilmette, a north shore suburb of Chicago. Our mission is to provide a social network to enhance the lives of people with Type 1 diabetes through education, support and community.

Come for the Education

Educational programs by medical and technical professionals:

  • Research updates
  • Cutting-edge technologies
  • Health & nutrition education
  • Creative problem solving
  • Learning through shared experiences
  • Lifestyle issues

Come for the Support

Living with diabetes is a constant challenge and connecting with others in the same situation can help us feel less alone.

We really “get it” when it comes to living with diabetes and support one another by sharing information, experiences and coping strategies.
