Waco Diabetes Parent Workshop was a BIG hit!

March 15, 2011

We would like to thank everyone who attended JDRF’s Diabetes Parent Workshop “Secrets Kids With Diabetes Keep™: What They Don’t Want You to Know & What You Can Do About It,” by Jeanine Connolly on Thursday, March 3, 2011.

Raising a child with Diabetes is complicated. Jeanine shared great information on how to raise happy, healthy kids from someone who’s lived it. Her presentation took the parents through the roller coaster life of a child with Diabetes, from birth to 20 years old by sharing some of her own experiences as a child.

Jeanine Connolly is a Licensed Professional Counselor-Intern who was diagnosed with diabetes 38 years ago at the age of 4.  She understands what it’s like for kids and adults and knows from experience that you can Win With Diabetes!  For more information about Jeanine, please visit Win With Diabetes. Big thanks to Jeanine Connolly for leading this great event and the Gunn Family, Grosz Family, and Stark Family for sharing their story with KCEN Waco TV.
