The Type 1 College Diabetes Network at Marshall University (T1CDN@MU) is a new student organization offering support and advocacy to students with type 1 diabetes. The mission of T1CDN@MU is to provide type 1 diabetes advocacy to promote a friendly campus environment for all students living with type 1. Three goals have been established for the 2018-2019 school year:
- Get students involved.
- Establish a “Buddy System” consisting of a group of four members; two members without type 1 and two members living with type 1. This mix will allow for support, friendship, and assistance when in need.
- Provide snack stations across campus for students when they have low blood sugar, fatigue, and have forgotten snacks.
This organization was started by Co-Presidents Haley Whiteman and Heather Hardyman. Also involved with the startup is Paige Rollins – Social Media Chair, Megan Chafin – Secretary, and Abigail Saxton – Treasurer. We are all so excited and delighted to be able to provide to the T1D community at Marshall University and to spread awareness of T1D!
