  • Join The Movement! Take the #BigBlueTest as many times as you can between now and November 14th, 2014 to help yourself and to help others. The Big Blue Test is a program of the Diabetes Hands Foundation that emphasizes the importance of physical activity in diabetes management. Test your glucose, get active for 14-20 minutes, test again and then share those results on and each time you do, $1 will be donated to a diabetes clinic that is providing life-saving supplies and services to people living with diabetes in need!

  • TCOYD recently launched the We Are One website, an online collaborative group for individuals who are working in the area of diabetes and are also living with type 1 diabetes. Check it out!
