For years DYS has served Michigan type 1 families, but we have dedicated 2019 to doing it better. Last year we launched a successful chapter in Findlay, Ohio, and are replicating the model in Michigan. Our goal is to bring programming up north, so more families can meet DYS and benefit from the support and services we provide.
We have had a lot of enthusiasm about this chapter. The Metro Detroit JDRF Chapter is partnering with us to host a Mom’s Retreat. We have also formed a committee of excited parents that are advising us along the way. We are taking suggestions for events, locations, and more, from the folks we are trying to reach. We can’t do everything in 2019, but we are taking note and working to build a local organization that can really support Michigan families.
Do you have to live in Michigan to attend these events? No way? Anyone is welcome. Please see the Michigan Chapter page on our website for a list of the local events.
