Now more than ever, we need to stay connected as a community — to support each other and share vital information and resources. There are so many ways for you to help, stay in touch remotely and continue driving life-changing breakthroughs in type 1 diabetes (T1D) treatments and therapies.
Learn more about our Chapter’s upcoming Community Engagement events below:
Weekly E-Meet & Greet Sessions – Every Wednesday at 7:00 PM EST
Are you the parent of a child new to T1D? Join other parents for our weekly Wednesday E-Meet & Greet series! Connect with others in the T1D community and a JDRF Outreach Volunteer. Outreach Volunteers are trained T1D community leaders, who have once been where you are right now. They live with or care for someone with T1D and are the true voice of experience.
RSVP is necessary to receive the zoom details for any Wednesday you wish to join – firstname.lastname@example.org .
