Cornerstone Classes

Overcome your biggest T1D challenges
with these online video classes.

Knowledge is Power

Knowledge is Power

What if instead of feeling uncertain about your body’s patterns, trapped in a cycle of unpredictability, or limited to a restrictive regiment, you were finally able to work WITH your diabetes, understand your body’s nuances, and strategize to live your life without T1D holding you back?

Just imagine what’s possible when your diabetes isn’t an ever-present question mark.
By knowing more than the “count carbs and give insulin” guidelines you were given at diagnosis, you will be able to support your blood sugars, adjust accordingly, and operate from a place of confidence.

The Cornerstone Classes are designed for self-motivated, independent learners on a mission to fill the gaps in their education outside the endo’s office with knowledge and strategies that encompass the nuances of T1D.

Get curious about what your outcomes can be when you take ownership of your diabetes.


The missing pieces of education you need to live confidently with T1D.

This is for you if:

You leave your endo appointment with unanswered questions about how to manage day-to-day hurdles of T1D.

You’ve been told that you “just need to accept” a level of health that is below your personal standards.

You want more in-depth knowledge of your diabetes so you can make better choices for your body.

What's inside:

Educational content developed in collaboration with our Medical Advisory Board and taught by our founder, Lauren Bongiorno.

30-minute classes delivered digitally for lifetime access and packed with valuable resources, sustainable strategies, downloadable guides.

Comprehensive resource library designed for people living with diabetes at all ages and years of experience.

Are these designed for people who are newly diagnosed?

The classes are created for people living with diabetes and caregivers of T1D’s at all ages and levels of experience. Whether you are newly diagnosed, a seasoned T1D, or a parent of a child with T1D, these classes will help you fill the gaps you face as you work to become more confident with diabetes.

Which class should I start with?

All of these classes compliment each other and provide a holistic in-depth learning experience. Picture a scale of 0-10 where 10 means that T1D isn’t a challenge for you at all and 0 is feeling completely overwhelmed by it. If you feel like your relationship to diabetes is at an 8 or below, we recommend getting the All Access pass. The all access pass gives you access to all of the classes (including future ones!) so you can get all of the educational support you need to start feeling more confident. If you’re feeling great about your diabetes and just need support with one thing, we encourage you to find that particular class and start there.
