The ADA x BT1 Collab
About the ADA x Beyond Type 1 Collab
This partnership will feature combined resources, strategies, and tactics to better serve people living with Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes, and prediabetes.
The ADA x BT1 Collab is founded on a shared vision that both organizations are more impactful by working together and playing to their unique strengths.
Much of the work of the Collab will focus on bringing the most important and up-to-date medical and research information directly to people living with diabetes.
Every year, the American Diabetes Association’s summer camps give thousands of children the opportunity to make life-changing connections with other kids with Type 1 diabetes.
Imagine Camp included a weekly speaker series that took place all throughout summer and was co-produced by the ADA and Beyond Type 1 and hosted by Rob Howe. The series, “Imagine Spotlights,” featured conversations with impressive individuals living with diabetes, serving as a weekly dose of inspiration and fun experience for campers and their families at home.
