Video chat

Ypsomed Diabetescare is excited to announce our new virtual education series, ‘T1 Connects’, developed specifically for the needs of people living with Type 1 diabetes in Canada. Join us via video chat to hear from a range of healthcare professionals and 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.

The first session in the series will take place Wednesday, September 16. All sessions will go for about 45 minutes with time at the end for additional Q&A by the audience.
