A new diagnosis of type 1 diabetes can spark a range of reactions including anger, sadness, and guilt. Whatever your feelings, they are normal, and you are not alone.
Until there is a cure, we want to provide information that will help you cope with the burdens type 1 diabetes imposes, share with you the help that is available today, and keep you and your loved ones as strong and healthy as possible.
Education and Outreach Events - The NEO Chapter of JDRF hold support group meetings on the third Saturday of every other month (Jan, Mar, May, July, Sept, and Nov). These groups offer an opportunity for newly diagnosed and their families to talk with other families and medical professionals on a variety of issues that arise when living with type 1 diabetes. These groups meet at the JDRF office from 9:30 to 11 AM.
In addition to support group meetings, speaker series are held throughout the year. These educational topics address significant issues impacting life with diabetes. Speaker Series dates and topics are announced via eNewsletter and posted on the calendar of events.
Bag of Hope - JDRF offers a free public outreach program to help families who have recently had a child diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
