Welcome to the College Diabetes Network Website
What is CDN?
The College Diabetes Network (CDN) is a 501c3 non-profit organization, whose mission is to empower and improve the lives of students living with Type 1 diabetes through peer support and access to information and resources.
CDN’s vision is to create a college community, which will enable students with Diabetes to thrive in all of their personal, healthcare, and scholastic accomplishments.
Founded in 2009 by a student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, CDN started out as a small student group on campus, but quickly grew into a national organization with chapters throughout the country and in Canada.
Why We Were Created
College life with diabetes can get complicated and overwhelming! CDN is a resource whose sole focus is to help students as they navigate through the wonderful chaos of college. We aren’t just reiterating “doctors office advice”, we connect you with your peers, so that you can share real experiences and find what works best for you!
