Bag of Hope: A wealth of free resources given to newly diagnosed children with type 1 diabetes. The bag includes educational materials for children and for their caregivers, Rufus - the bear with diabetes, and a blood glucose meter.
Mentoring: We offer mentoring services for those with type 1 diabetes or those connected to someone with T1D. We match with our trained mentors based on your patricular situation or location.
Support Groups: We host newly diagnosed support group meetings twice a year and an adult type 1 networking group bimonthly. Look at our chapter website or email us for upcoming dates and events.
Education: Through our Kids Walk to Cure Diabetes program - we educate approximately 7,000 elementary aged students each school year in Northeast and Central Wisconsin on the differences between type 1 and type 2 diabetes and the importance of diet and exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.
