What is your relationship to CIM?

I love people with Type 1 diabetes!

 

What do you like about volunteering?

  • It allows me to give back to a community that has meant so much to my family.
  • Connecting with people. It provides me with an opportunity to engage with those living with type 1 outside of a clinical setting. I always walk away having learned so much about the lived experience which I hope strengthens my work as an HCP.
  • It’s fun! and I get to be creative. 

What does the Type 1 diabetes community mean to you?

  • The diabetes community is inspiring
  • It’s witnessing a group of unique individuals with a common link, helping to build each other up and make the journey a little bit easier and a little less lonely.
  • It’s strength in numbers!
