Patient Education is one of our favorite topics here at Active Healthcare. We wanted to share the exciting news about an upcoming diabetes educational event coming to the Triangle area of North Carolina in a few months.
Taking Control of Your Diabetes (TCOYD) is a non-profit charitable educational organization that sponsors educational events in cities across the United States for people with diabetes, their families, and caregivers.
“TCOYD educates, motivates, empowers and inspires people with diabetes — and family and friends who care about them — to take a more active role managing their diabetes, and being self-advocates. We do this by providing the best diabetes conferences & educational programs!”
