T1D Community Connection Program – Join our Training in June!
Are you interested in connecting with individuals/families in a meaningful way to foster relationships by welcoming, supporting, guiding, and connecting them to the larger T1D community and JDRF? The Eastern PA Chapter is recruiting to train outreach volunteers to join the T1D Community Connections Program. Each Outreach Volunteer will be assigned a new family and will be asked to reach out to the family once a month for the first year of their diagnosis to engage and support the connection.
We are also in need of volunteers who are multi-lingual (Spanish, any Asian dialect, etc.). If you or someone you know are multi-lingual and have an interest in connecting with newly diagnosed families, this is the committee for you!
Our next training will be held in mid-June. If you would like to support and connect with newly diagnosed families, please contact our Outreach Manager, CarlaAnn Henry at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-227-0361 to learn more.
