The College Diabetes Network (CDN) is the only nonprofit organization singularly focused on empowering young adults with diabetes during their transition to independence at college and beyond. By creating peer-based support networks and equipping young adults with expert resources and direction, CDN provides a pathway to owning one’s health decisions. The result is young adults who feel better, understand their options, are familiar with how to access these options, and are more empowered to do so.
Many people with diabetes are feeling anxious and confused about ways to have their voices and stories heard and addressed. The Political Advocacy Guide is a resource that empowers one through clear and actionable paths to engaging with local, state, and federal governments on issues of importance to people with diabetes.
Coming soon: stay tuned for the Off to Work Guide, which covers the transition from college to the workplace with T1D.
