We are so excited for the final Sugar Surfing Workshop of 2018! It will be held in Ft. Worth, Texas on December 8th at the University of North Texas Health Science Center (UNTHSC), starting at 10:30 am. Like our Workshop in Longview this past summer, this is also a double speaker full day Workshop, which was a big success.
Opening the Workshop will be Anne Imber, the Founder of the website Type 1 To Go.com. Anne will give her presentation "Kindergarten to College: 504 Plans at School" which educates parents and students on their rights and responsibilities under a 504 education plan. This is a very relevant topic for any student with Type 1 diabetes. Please check out Anne's website, https://type1togo.com for lots of helpful information, checklists and forms.
After the lunch break, Dr. Ponder will give his Sugar Surfing Workshop. This is a three hour Workshop with a 20 minute intermission. The Workshop explains the concepts in Sugar Surfing as well as providing examples and illustrations of Sugar Surfing in action.
This is a full day Workshop and lunch will be included. The cost of registration is $35 for an individual, $45 for two, and $65 for a family. You may attend all or part of the Workshop, as your schedule permits. We do encourage children to attend, especially if they are currently Sugar Surfing or interested in starting, and they are able to sit and pay attention for all or most of the Workshop. We have found that most children age 10 and up do very well and enjoy the Workshops if they are interested and involved in their diabetes management.
Please go to www.sugarsurfing.com/ftworth2018 to see the exact times and agenda for the Workshop and the location. Check-in starts at 9:30 am. We hope to see you there!
There is still plenty of time to order your copy of the book if you need one. Please order via our website storefront www.gumroad.com/sugarsurfing (and not Amazon) to help us avoid their high fees. They are shipped directly to you from our home in Texas. Electronic books in three formats (PDF, Kindle, E-Pub) are also available from this site that are downloaded immediately.
So, please join Dr. Ponder and Anne Imber if you can for our last Workshop of the year and enjoy some time in Ft. Worth, Texas!
