2021 NextGen Fellowship
Description

CDN’s NextGen Fellowship program provides young adults opportunities to jumpstart their passion through professional development, connections and mentorship. We will empower the future generation of leaders who will positively influence the future of diabetes care and treatment. We’ve designed this program to be educational yet inspirational, and full of peer support and professional development.

In 2021, we will be selecting 20 young adults to participate in a virtual six-month NextGen Fellowship Program. This Fellowship will run from April to November and includes:

  • Being paired with a mentor (think amazing diabetes educator, psychologist, or endo) to network with and discuss your career goal. 

  • Leadership and skill building workshops - an eight week summit series with sessions in professional writing, public speaking, advocacy, and more. 

  • Opportunity to attend a national diabetes conference to learn ground-breaking research and exposure to world-renowned speakers and experts. 

  • Individual Projects with guidance and support form your mentor and CDN staff. 

  • Public speaking opportunities representing CDN within the diabetes community. 

  • And, most importantly, a connection with other people "who get it."

AADE 2018 has definitely reinforced my goals. I want to become a Nurse Practitioner specializing in type 1 diabetes. So having one of my mentors with a Doctorate in Nursing and hearing her academic goals and accomplishments really motivated me even more.

Attending a Conference
Quote Description

Walking into the [ADA Scientific Sessions] exhibition hall made me feel like I was in diabetes Disneyland. Spending a week surrounded by so many like-minded people was inspiring. From the presenters, my mentor, fellow CDN members, to the CDN staff, everyone had something to offer. All of the presenters left me feeling motivated to work toward my own career so that I might be in their shoes one day and everyone I met left me feeling inspired.
