Quote Description

“I love spreading the word about CDN. Whenever I volunteered at TypeOne Nation, everyone told me they loved the handouts about safe drinking tips and how to tell your roommate you have diabetes. Many parents talked to me for long periods of time because they were so worried about their children going off to college. I hope I eased their hearts a little bit.

Quote Description

"If you’re really serious about getting people to better outcomes, it’s not just about medicine. It’s about understanding the people who use our medicines. You can’t do that sitting at a desk, wondering what people think. You need to get out to meet people and talk to them. They need to share some of their experiences. This retreat has been a fantastic opportunity to do that."

"CDN is a terrific organization. It is wonderful to see new chapters being established across the country. Having peer groups where common issues can be discussed have been shown to be very valuable, especially as young adults move from pediatrics to adult clinics."
