 October 2014 Newsletter

October = candy, pumpkins, and a new CDN site.
You have to love October - it brings with it all these sweet and wonderful things. On that note, have you seen our new website?! We've worked long and hard to improve the quality and quantity of the resources and information we're providing you. If you haven't seen it, please take a few minutes to do so - and let us know what you think! 

Happy Bolusing!

CDN News
CDN Launches Website
We are SO excited to share with you that our new website has launched. The site features over 70 resources; more information and advice than ever before; and of course a beautiful face lift. While the site is built primarily for students, we made sure to include a special place for parents, clinicians, campus staff, friends and roommates as well. We want to extend a huge thank you to Lilly Diabetes for the in-kind donation that made our redesign possible.
