Diabetes Training Camp provides a unique twist from traditional diabetes camps for children.
This year, DiabetesCare.net and Diabetes Training Camp are offering the chance for someone to win a registration scholarship to the premier week-long diabetes summer camp for adults, for free. The contest winner will learn how to combine exercise with diabetes management to achieve their goals, and network with others with similar experiences.
The prize is a full scholarship to attend Diabetes Training Camp from June 10-15, 2013. The contest is open to people 18 years of age or older who have either type1 or type 2 diabetes.
Diabetes Training Camp is held at Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, PA. The camp is an opportunity for people with diabetes to spend time with medical providers, nutritionists, coaches and professional trainers to not only learn disease management skills, but learn to incorporate fitness training into their daily lives. People of all athletic levels are invited to attend the camp, ranging from a person just starting off on their exercise goals to someone training for a specific event, like a triathlon.
"DiabetesCare.net is excited to be involved in such a great project, and we look forward to seeing someone enjoy the experiences of the camp," says John Parkinson, Clinical Content Coordinator, DiabetesCare.net.
"We are thrilled to be able to offer a scholarship to a future camper through DiabetesCare.net. This is a wonderful opportunity to reach people living with diabetes who could benefit from the Diabetes Training Camp, experience and be surrounded by campers and staff who 'get it,'" says Matt Corcoran, MD, founder of Diabetes Training Camp.
