Longview Type One Diabetes Foundation will be meeting Monday, June 15th 6:30 pm at The Institute for Healthy Living in Longview in Classroom 1.
This month we will have Sanofi representatives Leon & Dave coming to tell us about two new treatment options!
Leon will be presenting about the newly FDA approved rapid acting inhaled insulin, Afreeza. Dave will be presenting about the newly FDA approved long acting injectable insulin, Toujeo, which has 3 times more insulin than any current long acting insulin pen.
They will also be available to answer any questions regarding any of Sanofi's other available treatments/products, such as Lantus, Apidra or iBGstar. We truly hope to see you all!!
Here are links with more information about their treatments:
You are welcome to bring your own food & drink during the meeting!

Our March meeting was the last of our monthly support group meetings. We will begin having support group meetings every 3 months after March. As mentioned previously, the Longview Type One board will be trying different things in order to offer better support. Attendance to monthly support group meetings has either been low. We hope by doing support group meetings every 3 months, we can draw a bigger crowd. Our speakers often drive here from great distances and volunteer their time/services so we want to try to make the best use out of everyone's time. Our new meeting location & change in meeting frequency, are new changes for 2015 that we hope better serve everyone. We also welcome feedback & opinions so please feel free to contact me or any of our board members. We do plan to have fun meet-ups each month & will update you soon with details. We need to hear from you to serve everyONE!

OUR SUPPORT GROUP:
If you or a loved one live with Type 1 diabetes, you know that it is a daily, relentless challenege. It can be very frustrating in the short term, and frightening in the long term. Our mission is to build a vibrant lasting local support system for the Longview and East Texas area until there is a cure. Continued education and support is an important part of realizing our mission, so we are pleased to offer a support group for the entire family.
