About the college diabetes Network

Why we were created

The College Diabetes Network (CDN) was created out of a glaring need young adults with type one had been experiencing for years, and we have become a hub of resources, support, and understanding for this underserved population.



Meet Our Team

"In 2009, during my junior year at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, I started a group on campus so that I could meet other students juggling diabetes and college life. That group changed my life and the many barriers I experienced in creating the group changed the path of my life."

CDN Founder

 CDN is singularly focused on providing young adults with T1D the peer connections they value, and expert resources they need, to successfully manage the challenging transition to independence at college and beyond.
