Abstract or Description

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is a national organization that was started back in 1970 by two mothers of sons with type 1 diabetes. Since its founding, JDRF has awarded more than $1.5 billion to diabetes research around the world, including $9.9 million of research in San Diego. JDRF is a volunteer-driven organization with thousands of volunteers in locations worldwide. While JDRF is working hard to find a cure and improve the lives of those living with type 1 diabetes, it also has a goal of providing volunteer-led support programs to people with type 1 diabetes and their families. JDRF San Diego is challenged with being able to provide outreach support to families in the South Bay area. Alicia Milla and Alexis Rodriguez developed a proposed Community Action Plan to assist the San Diego chapter of JDRF in becoming more responsive to the South Bay community.
