The College Diabetes Network (CDN) announces a partnership with College Health TV to deliver video content on type 1 diabetes (T1D) to colleges and universities. Educational videos, produced by CDN, will stream at over 200 campus health centers across the US beginning in September 2019.
This is part of an exciting new initiative for CDN as it continues to expand its campus reach. CDN has spent the last decade developing resources for students with T1D to help them make a successful transition from home to college and beyond. Now the organization is able to reach and engage campus clinicians and administrators directly to maximize the impact of its programs.
“Students with invisible illnesses, like diabetes, need support as they transition from home to campus life” says Anna Sabino, CDN’s Program Director. “This exciting new partnership will allow CDN’s insights and resources to reach even more T1D students across the country and support a growing number of academic institutions as they care for this at-risk student population.”
Students living with a chronic autoimmune disease such as T1D are learning to navigate the challenging adjustment to college life: balancing academics, relationships, extracurriculars, work study and internships while managing their physical and mental health needs. College Health TV and CDN are working together to ensure that this student population gets the information they need at a critical time.
“Diabetes is not just a disease of older adults; it’s affecting more and more college students. We must treat teens and young adults with the appropriate modalities, but we must also educate the entire college community so that we can prevent this devastating disease from destroying their lives in the future” says Dr. Corey Hebert, CEO of College Health TV.
The College Diabetes Network (CDN), a non-profit organization headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, is the only organization that speaks to, and for, the young adult population with diabetes. Our mission is singularly focused on providing these young adults with the peer connections they value, and expert resources they need to successfully manage the challenging transition to independence at college and beyond.
