Local Support for Hawaii! Get To Know the T1D Connections Program

in ,

A way to connect the Hawaii T1D Community!

The JDRF T1D Connections Program matches newly diagnosed individuals and families with others who have lived with type 1 diabetes (T1D) for years. JDRF Outreach Volunteers are the voices of experience and hope for those facing the challenge of learning to manage their T1D, or those transitioning to a new life stage with T1D.

As someone who “gets” life with T1D, you have so much to offer! If you are interested in becoming an Outreach Volunteer and making a difference for families with T1D, please contact hawaii@jdrf.org. Maybe you didn’t have the support you needed when your family was first diagnosed. YOU can be that support for a local family!

“I know how it feels to be newly diagnosed with T1D. As an Outreach Volunteer, I’m here to help you navigate this difficult time and be whatever you need: a friend, a shoulder, or a resource.”   – Brian Herrick, diagnosed at 3
