Beta Connect is an emerging diabetes empowerment organization dedicated to implementing mentor programs at hospitals and healthcare centers.
Developed with a philosophy that emphasizes an approach to diabetes as a relationship or teammate, Beta Connect aims to improve the lives of children faced with the challenges and struggles of life with diabetes by helping them understand their personal diabetes story and dynamic relationship to it.
We facilitate mentorship programs such as Insulliance and ConnecT1D to provide youth with diabetes access to the social support and role models we find necessary for healthy coping.
Beta Connect and our mentors aim to open dialogue and create partnerships that have the capacity to build and strengthen the diabetes community as a whole.
We are optimistic that Insulliance and ConnecT1D will show themselves to be effective programs with an approach and path to self-empowerment that leads to improved diabetes management for youth who participate in the program.
Our mentors are effective leaders who lead by example and strive to show youth that tough experiences with diabetes are not isolating, but are rather a means of connection to others with diabetes.
