The Diabetes Scholars Foundation
Lilly Diabetes shares the Diabetes Scholars Foundation’s (DSF) belief that young people with type 1 diabetes should live their lives to the fullest. That’s why we’ve donated over $600,000 to DSF since 2012 in support of educational scholarships.
"The Diabetes Scholars Foundation is so grateful that Lilly Diabetes continues to support our mission to empower people with type 1 diabetes," said Mary Podjasek, president, Diabetes Scholars Foundation. "Because of successful partnerships like these, so many young adults living with type 1 diabetes are able to follow their dreams."
COLLEGE DIABETES NETWORK: FOR THE HIGHS AND LOWS OF COLLEGE LIFE
The College Diabetes Network (CDN) creates a community of young adults with diabetes through its national network of campus-based chapters and empowers all students through the hub of resources available on their website. Campus life and independence are complicated enough without diabetes. CDN helps to make this transition a little easier. Lilly Diabetes is proud to be the organization’s first Founding Level Corporate Member.
Originally founded in 2009 by a college student, CDN started out as a small student group on one campus but quickly grew into a national organization with chapters throughout the country. CDN’s mission is to empower and improve the lives of students living with diabetes through peer support and access to information and resources.
“CDN’s partnership with Lilly Diabetes began when Lilly Diabetes became our first Founding Level Corporate Partner. Lilly’s commitment to our mission from the very beginning has been an integral part of our community’s growth. But even more important and impactful is their continued commitment to collaboration- helping us to transform the experience of all young adults with diabetes” said Christina Roth, CDN’s CEO and Founder.
