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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
“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
