Type 1 Discovery Day, Maidstone, Kent

10 November 2012 (South)

Come along to the Type 1 Discovery Day at Invicta Grammar School, Maidstone, Kent and find out more about the latest in type 1 diabetes research.

As well as hearing about the latest JDRF funded research we will hear from Neil Emery, Associate Solicitor at Whitehead Monckton and keen mountain walker. Neil is kind enough to give up his Saturday morning to help us understand about type 1 and the workplace. He will give an informal guide to your rights and protections as an employee, whether you have, or are related to someone with, type 1 diabetes. 

We will also hear from William Chanter, teenager and JDRF T1 Ambassador. William will share his experiences on how type 1 does not stop him doing some amazing things. This will include his love of dinghy sailing (William is an accomplished 29er dinghy sailor, which is one step before the Olympic 49er), his involvement in JDRF’s Children Congress in Washington DC, being an Olympic Torchbearer and his attendance at Type 1 Parliament. 

You will also get the chance to chat to JDRF staff and meet other families affected by type 1. There will also be entertainment in a nearby room with Marli the Magician who will be combining magic, comedy and balloon modelling.  Please note that children remain the responsibility of the parents on this occasion.

Come along to Invicta Grammar School, Maidstone on Saturday 10 November from 10am – 12.30 and join the fun.
