Students for Diabetes Awareness

Students for Diabetes Awareness (SDA) is the University of Michigan chapter of CDN, College Diabetes Network. The group is made up of both diabetics and non-diabetics with the primary goals of raising awareness, money, and educating the greater University of Michigan campus about type 1 diabetes!

We hold multiple events throughout the year to raise awareness about diabetes, in addition to raising funds to donate to organizations that help the lives of those affected by type 1. In addition, SDA holds events during Diabetes Awareness Month in November to help educate the Univeristy of Michigan community. SDA also holds smaller events throughout the year to spread advocacy about diabetes on campus and support for students.
