Type 1 Diabetes Programs

We help build community.

Sansum Diabetes Research Institute understands whether you are newly diagnosed or living with diabetes for a long time, it is an overwhelming burden. Our type 1 diabetes (T1D) programs were created to provide you and your family with a space where you can feel supported and understood.

Whether you are recently diagnosed, or have been living with T1D for 50 years, we want to connect with you.

Our goal is to provide social, emotional and practical support to anyone in the T1D community. We have a team of experts that work hard to provide practical and up to date information and programs for you and your family.

Type 1 Diabetes Programs


The OneTalk program is a support group where participants have the opportunity to share their ideas, experiences and explore ways to enhance their health and lifestyle. OneTalk also provides presentation style sessions where participants have the opportunity to learn from experts in the field of T1D. Currently OneTalk sessions take place both in person at SDRI and via Zoom.


SDRI cares about you, and we are here to help! Whether you or your child has recently been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, or you’ve been living with diabetes for 30 years, we’d love to connect you with a local mentor. Our mentorship program is designed for you to connect with another individual or family in your area that is impacted by type 1 diabetes.
