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: jdrfillinois.org/.../ylc.html. They also have a Facebook group: www.facebook.com/.../150956271584386.
I hope this helps! Feel free to contact me through Juvenation or via email directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
