If you have diabetes, come to the Taking Control of Your Diabetes (TCOYD) Conference in Salt Lake City on April 8th.


Take control of your diabetes and join us for a day that will ignite motivation for change, offer hope, provide invaluable education, and change the life of anyone who has diabetes.

What makes a TCOYD conference special?

Dr. Steve Edelman, Founder and Director of the not-for-profit TCOYD, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 15 and has lived well with the disease for over four decades.

Dr. Edelman’s mission is to educate, empower and inspire people just like him. Dr. Edelman has never allowed diabetes to define his life. Instead, he spends his life defining a new way to teach individuals how to live healthy and happy lives with diabetes.

This is a national conference that only appears in select cities across the nation each year. It is an all day conference with presentations for those with Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes.
