The volunteer and staff relationship are a cornerstone of what makes JDRF successful. The MN Chapter Board consists of 23 individuals who represent various industry and background, but their common thread is that they share the desire to help fund research that will turn type one into type none. They are fantastically committed individuals who bring exceptional leadership and vision to our chapter. Recently, our Chapter Board of Directors, led by Chapter Board President Vince Altstaetter, welcomed four new members to join their work in developing strategy and driving outcomes to help us do our best work.

Our many thanks to Jane Chen, M.D., Louis Lambert, Josh Yates and Mike Sawers for giving of your time, your many talents, and for inspiring the community around you to support the work of JDRF.
