I am trying to get info on meetings and/or classes in the Morgantown-Fairmont WV area. Also would be willing to travel in a 30 mile radius of these cities. Maybe someone can give me info on how to find classes/meeting? I do not know where to begin.I would be thankful for any and all the help anyone can provide.

Classes are okay, but they're usually pretty basic and most D classes are focused on treating type 2. Some other options you may want to consider.
There are online classes offered by Gary Scheiner's company (he wrote "Think Like a Pancreas"). Each class is $29 and the topics are good. https://www.type1university.com/
This list of books is also excellent. Especially the highly recommended ones. http://www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/d_06_b00.htm
Also, sometimes the insulin pump manufacturers like Medtronic Minimed will offer diabetes classes along with product demos. The classes I attend on carb counting and some other topics were really helpful. The classes must be effective from Minimed's perspective too... I bought one of their pumps!
You might also try calling the ADA and JDRF in your area they should be able to recommend something.
