The DFI Young Professionals is a cause-related subgroup of the DFI that raises health awareness about diabetes among young adults through networking, education, and social events. The group was created to educate young adults on the causes, treatment, and successful self-management of diabetes through community fundraising and support. The group’s primary objectives are to serve the needs of young adults diagnosed with Type 1, Type 2, or gestational diabetes; coordinate events to raise awareness and generate funding; provide linkages to community resources to promote the self-management of diabetes; and offer short-term medication assistance to those struggling to pay for medication and supplies.
