JDRF Southern California Chapter Year in Review

in , , , ,

As our fiscal year comes to a close, all of us at the JDRF Southern California chapter would like to express our deepest gratitude and most sincere thanks to our amazing communities – Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego & Hawaii – for their support.  While this year has been challenging in so many ways, and we have missed being able to see everyone in person, we have been truly inspired and moved by our community’s support, engagement and continued dedication to JDRF’s mission.

Here are some of the highlights of this last year.
