About the Program

Mother Daughter Weekend is a very special Carb DM program that is now in its 7th year! Our focus is entirely on type 1 diabetes from the female perspective and is geared towards pre-teen and teenage girls ages 12 and up, and their mothers or primary female caregivers.

During the weekend we emphasize topics such as mother-daughter communication, navigating social situations, peer and romantic relationships, diabetes management, the female hormone cycle, being your own advocate, developing a healthy relationship with your body and food, caregiver care (mom’s matter too!), and other topics that are top of mind for T1D parents and growing young women.

All of our speakers and volunteers are also living with T1D themselves, or have extensive experience working in the type 1 diabetes world.

This is the perfect time to get away, reconnect, re-energize, and recommit yourself to each other, to your diabetes management, and to developing a tightly-knit community of peers. Don’t miss it!

“I loved being with the other moms who are going through the same things that I’m going through with my daughter. The support is amazing! The speakers gave us tons of information that has been so helpful in so many ways. I saw my child opening up and enjoying herself with others. I just love everything about the weekend!”

“I feel more supported and less isolated after going to the weekend. I see the ways we are doing well, and how strong my daughter is. I got great tips and tricks [from] conversing with other moms.”

“[After the weekend, I am now] trying to be a better listener… I have so much respect for [my daughter] and how she handles herself.”

Program Fees:

  • The actual cost of this weekend program is $350 per person, but because of generous donors, the subsidized fee to attend is $275/person. If you have 2 daughters with T1D, your second child is only $200. *This includes all meals, materials, activities, t-shirts, and more!
  • We do have limited scholarship funds available thanks to ABC Diabetics. Priority is given to new families who have never attended Mother-Daughter Weekend before and are awarded on a first come-first serve basis. Apply early!
