Elizabeth Forrest, Founder of Touched by Type 1 and Producer of the annual Dancing for Diabetes show says, “Year-round we are providing resources, materials, events and programs that are meeting the needs of people with Type 1 Diabetes, not just in our community but beyond.” she continues,

“Our 20th Anniversary show was held last year at Dr. Phillips Center. Because of COVID19, we performed to an empty theater and we brought dancers in, group by group. Making the show available virtually, elevated our impact. So, this year, we will not only perform for those in person, in Orlando, but we will be making the show available for free to everyone with an internet connection.”
