TCOYD founder and director Steven Edelman, MD, who has lived with diabetes for 37 years, says, "Diabetes is demanding and people's daily decisions have an immediate impact on their health. At the same time, information about living with diabetes is complex. Education is critical to staying on top of this disease."

Leading specialists from across the country will offer practical advice and discuss the latest developments in the treatment of diabetes, the complications of the disease, psychological barriers to controlling diabetes, nutritional issues and much more. TCOYD participants can hear lectures, participate in screenings, experiment with some different forms of exercise and speak one-on-one with diabetes specialists including physicians, exercise physiologists, psychologists, pediatricians, researchers, attorneys, dietitians, pharmacists, podiatrists and surgeons.

A health fair with 60 informational exhibits from national and local diabetes-related companies and organizations will be open throughout the day. Lunch is included and will feature special guest speakers Doug Burns, who holds bodybuilding titles including Mr. USA and Mr. Universe, as well as 1999 Miss America winner and diabetes advocate Nicole Johnson. Mr. Burns and Ms. Johnson will share their personal stories, living well with type 1 diabetes.

Steven V. Edelman, MD, founder and director of Taking Control of Your Diabetes (TCOYD), was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 15.
