 February 2015 Newsletter

National news. Record breaking numbers. Open applications
As spring semester begins, we have hit the ground running with some of our most exciting news to date (and even more in the pipeline!)
January brought a record breaking number of new chapter sign-ups, CNN (and all of its national affiliates) did a national news spotlight of CDN featuring our University of Georgia Chapter, Dawgs 4 Diabetes.
The national attention this has brought from the public media is unprecedented for young adults with diabetes and we are thrilled that we were able to feature the amazing work that all of our chapters do.

Happy Bolusing!
