T1D Toolkit was designed to support and uplift the diabetes education provided in clinic, and to make diabetes education resources more available for everyone. Our site includes educational material and a series of brief instructional videos covering a variety of subjects
At Diabetes Toolkit, we believe that knowledge is a cornerstone of diabetes self-care. Our team seeks to provide knowledge directly to people with diabetes, and to serve as a repository of educational resources for understaffed diabetes and primary care clinics. Diabetes Toolkit provides diabetes knowledge at no cost to people with diabetes online via T1D Toolkit and NODE.

How it works
T1D Toolkit currently has three main categories of focus: T1D101, Age Related Topics, and Technology. Within these themes, we discuss everything from basic diabetes terminology, to navigating diabetes at school, and even how to optimize diabetes technology so that people with T1D and their caregivers feel empowered to manage diabetes
