Group Description

Brave Buddies is an on-line support group for parents of kids with diabetes, primarily in the San Francisco Bay Area (including South Bay, East Bay, North Bay/Marin, East Bay/Sacramento, and Santa Cruz and environs). Brave Buddies is a service of Carb DM (www.carbdm.org).

Carb DM is a non profit organization whose mission is to build a supportive community that improves the quality of life and health of all those affected by type 1 diabetes. The Carb DM community fosters connections among people with diabetes, their loved ones, and medical professionals; promotes learning; and develops strategies for thriving with diabetes.

The focus on Brave Buddies is on sharing practical information related to our day-to-day lives with T1D. We try to keep e-mail on-topic so that the list remains useful. Typical topics could include how to handle preschool, 504 school accommodations, managing sports activities, products you've found useful, research studies, and whether pumping is right for your child.

This is a private list. We allow no commercial postings or SPAM and allow only parents of kids with diabetes to subscribe to the list. We encourage private responses unless it is a topic of interest to the whole group. We also appreciate it when members can offer to compile the responses they receive and send them back to the list as a single e-mail.

Through Carb DM you will have the opportunity to connect with other parents and families in the Bay Area. To find out more about our programs, we encourage you to join our mailing list at www.carbdm.org.

In order to have your subscription approved please let us know your relationship to the person with T1D.

NOTE: PARENTS MAY OCCASIONALLY OFFER MEDICAL ADVICE THROUGH THIS LIST. ALWAYS CHECK THIS INFORMATION WITH YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE IMPLEMENTING. BRAVE BUDDIES, Carb DM AND THE PARENTS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS GROUP ASSUME NO LIABILITY. YOU MUST CHECK WITH DOCTORS!

We look forward to having you as part of the group!
