JDRF AZ Welcomes New Executive Director


It is with great pleasure that we announce Scott Showers as the new JDRF Arizona Chapter Executive Director.

Scott’s professional experience includes more than 25 years in business development. Most recently he served three years as Vice President of Annual Giving for Honor Health (formerly John C. Lincoln Health Network). Prior to Honor Health, Showers was with John C. Lincoln Health Network for eight years, holding the key positions of Director of Major Gifts and Vice President of Development and Operations. Additionally, his breadth and depth of experience and outcomes were gained and realized at Banner Health, Sun Health, American Red Cross, Glencroft, and Rainbow Acres, in a variety of important development and management capacities.

I was very excited at the opportunity to work for JDRF knowing that the work I do will have such a direct and significant impact in the lives of millions of people.  Being part of a global effort focused on life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its complications is a privilege and an honor.”

Scott’s achievements in implementing new business strategies, delivering innovative solutions, and facilitating nonprofit fundraising operations will be an asset to the Arizona Chapter and the local type 1 diabetes (T1D) community. Please join us in welcoming him to JDRF!
