Help. Hope. Support. Community.
OUTREACH- [out-r ch ]- n / v -to reach farther (than); extend, go beyond a limit. Teaching, sharing resources, and research; the act of reaching out in an effort to build connections; the extension of assistance, information or services beyond conventional limits to a particular segment of a community.
The JDRF Outreach Program is dedicated to going beyond all limits so that every member of the Type 1 community has the education, resources, and assistance needed to succeed and live a long and fulfilled life. Outreach brings together people who share our vision for a CURE and who will actively work with us to achieve this goal. More than 30 new families are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in this region monthly, and the JDRF Outreach Committee’s goal is to lend support to all of these families.
The JDRF Outreach Program embraces several key areas that are essential to reaching every segment of the community.
