College Diabetes Network Volunteer Application

Looking for more ways to support college students with diabetes? Become a College Diabetes Network (CDN) Volunteer and make a huge difference in the lives of young adults across the country with, and affected by, diabetes.

Thank you to SanofiLexicon Pharmaceuticals, and the National Certification Board of Diabetes Educators for partnering with us on this program!

What does a CDN Volunteer do?

  • Act as a local resource for CDN Chapters to provide support, assistance, a friendly face, or whatever other type of help you are willing to provide. Cook a meal for your local Chapter, act as an emergency contact for members, help host a meeting - be creative!

  • Ensure that your local community knows about CDN programs and resources. Spread the word about CDN to your local college campuses, diabetes clinics, diabetes organizations, T1D families, and more!

  • Start a fundraising campaign to help keep all of CDN's programs free and accessible for all young adults with T1D, their families, clinicians, and campuses.

  • CDN Alumni and recent graduates with T1D

  • Parents of children with T1D
  • Clinicians and care providers who have diabetes, or work with people with diabetes
  • Those with strong ties to the T1D community who want to offer support
