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, to provide youth with diabetes access to the social support and role models we find necessary for healthy coping.
Beta Connect team members aim to open dialogue and create partnerships that have the capacity to build and strengthen the diabetes community as a whole.
With its self empowerment approach, we are optimistic that Insulliance, and future programs like it, will improve diabetes management in its youth participants.
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.
