"EDUCATING THE MIND WITHOUT EDUCATING THE HEART IS NO EDUCATION AT ALL"
The mission of The Diabetes Family Connection is to positively transform life with diabetes through the power of community. Our organization provides recreation-based programs focused on building confidence, optimism, and support for families affected by diabetes.
Diabetes impacts every member of the family. At The Diabetes Family Connection (The DFC), we believe in focusing on a holistic, family approach to diabetes management. Our programs provide an intimate space for kids, teens, and families to come together to learn from each other as well as from empathetic healthcare providers with personal ties to diabetes. Together with our vibrant community, we transform the outlook on life with diabetes.
