DeKalb / Chicago burbs

I'm trying to meet more type I's around my age (I'm 25)  in the area.  I'd love to get a social/ support group going.  Let me know if you live by me.

Hi there -- I work for the JDRF Illinois Chapter. I'd be happy to help you get a group started in your area. We can post information on our local website, and I can send out an email blast to people in your area with a type 1 connection. Let me know if this is something you'd be interested in?

We also have a Young Leadership Committee -- basically young professionals with a connection to type 1 who organize different events for our chapter. More details are listed here: They also have a Facebook group:

I hope this helps! Feel free to contact me through Juvenation or via email directly at
