Type 1 Club Diabetes Support
For kids and teens with Type 1 diabetes and their families
The Type 1 Club at the Wendy Novak Diabetes Center was created by a family impacted by Type 1 diabetes. It is designed to provide the support, education and community that families need when they learn their child has Type 1 diabetes. Our goal is to provide families in Kentucky and Southern Indiana with support and resources as they adjust to a new “normal.” The club also seeks to promote awareness of Type 1 diabetes and offer opportunities for education.
The Type 1 Club is a parent-led group that offers members
- Peer and family support at the time of diagnosis
- Family events to connect a community with common needs
- Volunteer or mentoring opportunities
- Ongoing educational opportunities
- Connection to resources through the Wendy Novak Diabetes Center
The Type 1 Club is supported by the Children’s Hospital Foundation. The Wendy Novak Diabetes Center is a partnership between Lift a Life Foundation, Norton Children’s Hospital and the University of Louisville.
