Cassady Kintner : What you need to know to set your PWD up for success
Cassady Kintner has mastered the art of 'How to talk so your T1 listens, and Listen so your T1 talks' be it your child, teen, spouse or self. It is so important to understand that how you talk to yourself about your care on a daily basis will directly correlate to the payoff in the treatment and health of the person with T1. Cassady will set you up with what you need to know to set your person with diabetes up for success! Don't miss this session if you are a caregiver, or a T1 yourself. Give yourself the grace and gift of listening to be kind and accept that burnout is real and diabetes is work.
