Title
CDN was founded in 2009 by a college student with T1D who felt isolated and struggled to manage her diabetes.
Description

"As a student at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, I struggled with managing my T1D on my own. In my junior year, I formed a group to connect students with T1D. We supported each other, exchanged strategies, and even supplies. The group changed my life at college and was the impetus for starting CDN."

- Christina Roth, CEO and Founder
