Connecting Our T1D Community

in , ,

To keep our T1D community connected during these uncertain times, we will be taking our CommuniT1D and Type One Connect meet-up groups virtual!

JDRF announced that all in-person gatherings through June 30 would be cancelled or postponed, following guidance provided by the CDC and state officials and to help safeguard our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though we can’t meet in person, we know how vital it is to remain connected!  Below are more details for each group, how to participate, and special guests who will be joining us.

As we move forward together during these challenging times, we encourage you to stay connected to JDRF and our T1D community. We are continually posting updates and resources to our website, JDRF.org and our Facebook page JDRF Northern California. And, you can always reach out to our Outreach Manager, Elizabeth Cejka at ecejka@jdrf.org or 916-883-3161.
