What is type 1 diabetes? Share this brief educational video & brochure with your friends & family

December 2, 2010

We are excited to announce that Kelsey Hyman, JDRF Teen Volunteer, put together a type 1 diabetes educational video and brochure that you can share with your friends and family to help bring awareness to diabetes.

When Kelsey was 7 years old, her younger brother, Andrew, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Through the years, she has found a passion for diabetes awareness and became involved with the JDRF Greater Dallas Chapter as a volunteer.

When it came time for Kelsey to pick an organization to work with to achieve her Girl Scout Gold Award, JDRF was her first choice. For her project, she created an educational video and brochure explaining what type 1 diabetes is as a sibling of someone with diabetes for other siblings, family members and friends of people living with diabetes. Share this VIDEO and the What is T1 Diabetes Brochure with your friends and family to help educate and bring awareness to type 1 diabetes.

Important: These materials are only to be used as a resource for you and your family. You should always consult your doctor or a professional if you have any specific concerns or questions.
For more information about type 1 diabetes and for additional resources, please visit the JDRF Greater Dallas website.  JDRF’s mission is to find a cure for diabetes and it’s complications through the support of research.
