Outreach & Support

Living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) takes perseverance. JDRF recognizes that people find support in managing their health through various outlets. As the organization works to cure, treat and prevent T1D, we continue to provide a variety of Outreach events to support the needs of our communities. The JDRF has outreach events geared towards both adults and children.

Diabetes communities exist in many forms. Some participate in the Diabetes Online Communtiy (DOC) through online social networks dedicated to connecting those with diabetes like TypeOneNation and TuDiabetes, as well as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and many, many blogs.  Some take part in diabetes camp weekends, family retreats, and local Outreach events for families and adults. When it comes to fighting T1D, there is strength in numbers.
