NEW YORK — More than a traditional diabetes support organization, Risely Health has been able to disrupt the diabetes health care space by delivering intimate and accessible coaching and resources to people and families impacted by Type 1 Diabetes worldwide.

On November 10th from 7-9 pm EST, Risley will be hosting Together T1D, an empowering global virtual event in honor of National Diabetes Awareness Month. This event celebrates the lives of those who are people with diabetes, caregivers, and medical professionals across the world. Last year’s event attracted 2,500 people from 30 different countries and this year we estimate around 5,000 registrants.

Lauren Bongiorno, founder, and CEO of Risely Health has navigated T1D first hand since she was 7 years old and believes that when health transforms, so does everything else- our relationships, our time, our career, our families, and, most importantly, ourselves. Through empowerment and inclusivity, Risely Health has been able to help people become connected to others who share the same life experience. Through Together T1D, Risely Health has created an unparalleled event that brings these individuals together.

Our community activations are very much rooted in helping people get curious about what their outcomes and experience living with T1D can be, not what they are,” Bongiorno said.

This will be the 3rd year that Risely Health hosts this event, and they have found one of the key takeaways is that T1D’s and their caregivers feel such a sense of community, camaraderie, empowerment, and support leaving this event, and are so appreciative of seeing people they admire as part of it.

Featured Speakers include:

  • Charlotte Drury, US Olympic Athlete
  • Pietro Marsala, first Type 1 Diabetic Pilot to receive medical certification to fly for a commercial airline in the United States as of 2020
  • Kyle Banks, Broadway performer, Diabetes philanthropist
  • Michael Natter, NYC Endocrinologist, influencer, and artist
