Adult T1D MeetUp

This is a social group for adults with Type 1 Diabetes (Insulin Dependent) living in the greater Austin/Central Texas area. We are a fairly small percentage of the population and it would be nice to share some camaraderie with others who understand how emotionally draining this disease can be. Join us at our next social event: Facebook  & MeetUp
