TypeOneNation is asocial networking site for people with type1 diabetes and their families to connect with peers and lend/gain support to help with their disease. The site functions very much like any other social networking site, like Facebook or MySpace, but the members are all united by their connection to type 1 diabetes. On the site you can create a profile, participate in groups and discussion forums, and view and upload video content. TypeOneNation also has a super-cool educational resource center to help kids and adults educate their friends and co-workers about their disease. The center provides easy to understand information on type 1, and even includes a widget you can email or add to your blogs, MySpace and Facebook pages. Young adults with type 1 and parents of young children make up the largest demographic on TypeOneNation. Please visit http://www.typeonenation.org today and sign up to become a member. It’s easy and we’re sure you’ll meet some wonderful and inspiring people just like you! The TypeOneNation.org site was developed through a grant from Novo Nordisk.
