An evening dedicated to understanding and highlighting issues surrounding wearable tech, body image and stigma in Type 1 diabetes
Join the Type 1 diabetes (T1D) community at the Type 1 Diabetes Pump Couture Fashion Show in support of the Type 1 Diabetes Think Tank Network.
Packing up winter clothes and bringing out a summer wardrobe brings along with it some unique challenges for many people living with Type 1 diabetes. For those who use wearable technology, summertime often means that diabetes is on full display.
The Pump Couture Fashion Show will shine a spotlight on the challenges and opportunities that come with using diabetes devices. Featuring models living with Type 1 diabetes, the Pump Couture Fashion Show will stimulate conversation around body image, stigma, and the day-to-day challenges of adding diabetes devices to your wardrobe. Featuring models living with T1D, the event will not only showcase the latest fashion trends in diabetes, but will highlight the models' stories and experiences with diabetes and wearable tech.
Proceeds from the Pump Couture Fashion Show will support the Type 1 Diabetes Think Tank as they work to improve the health outcomes and quality of life for people with Type 1 diabetes.
