Lilly Diabetes recently donated $100,000 to the Diabetes Scholars Foundation, which funds both college scholarships and scholarships for families to attend the Children with Diabetes (CWD) annual Friends for Life (FFL) conference in Orlando, Florida. This is Lilly Diabetes’s second $100,000 donation, and we are elated to see them continue to support Diabetes Scholars’ wonderful efforts. The Foundation recognizes high school seniors who have diabetes and who show excellence in community involvement, activities, advocacy, and leadership. The scholarships go to any freshman that attends an accredited college, and the awards range from $1,000 to $5,000.
For those not familiar with CWD, the organization holds conferences where type 1 kids and their families can connect with other families, learn from experts, and have fun! At the annual conference that takes place in July in Orlando, top researchers, clinicians, and educators discuss the latest technology, the psychological side of diabetes, nutrition, and just about anything else.
