In early spring we are doing the first live Sugar Surfing Workshop of 2023, and in our hometown! We hope you can join us for this 2.5 hour Workshop on Saturday, March 4, 2023. It will be in Belton, Texas at the Harris Community Center, 401 N. Alexander Street in Belton, from 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm. It is a nice, large, comfortable venue in an historic Belton school lding a few blocks from downtown.

The cost to attend is only $10.00 per adult, children are free. As always we welcome the kids who have Type 1 diabetes as well as siblings, since they live with diabetes as well. We will not have child care for very small kids, but those who can pay attention (or be entertained) for the duration are welcome. We will have refreshments available.

For those of you who have joined Sugar Surfing since 2020, or have not attended a Workshop, this is a live presentation of the Sugar Surfing concepts with visual aids, by Dr. Stephen Ponder. Questions from the participants are welcome and add to the presentation. Dr. Ponder is currently updating the Workshop based on some new ideas he has come up with since the book was published in 2015. And who knows what funny hats he will wear? He has some new ones!

What is Sugar Surfing? It is a dynamic approach to diabetes management for adults and children with Type 1 diabetes, using data from CGM technology to better manage diabetes in the moment. Keep doing what you love by living better with diabetes. The Workshop is open to all people living with Type 1 Diabetes, their caregivers & medical professionals. So, feel free to invite the grandparents and other extended family, as well as your child's caregivers, teachers, and medical care team.

We are excited to be able to present this Workshop in our hometown. Belton is a great "small town" in central Texas. Belton has a nice downtown area with lots of restaurants and things to do. It is also easy to get to; it's just off I-35 between Waco and Austin. We hope to see people from all over central Texas and the surrounding areas in attendance. Belton is just a 2-3 hour drive from Houston, Dallas, and the Hill Country.

Please plan to arrive by 12:45 at the latest. Saturday, March 4, 2023 from 1-3:30 pm in Belton, Texas. We can't wait to see you there!
