Northern Nevada Branch News

I’d like to thank all of you for your hard work and dedication towards making this year’s Walk to Cure Diabetes such a success. We are well on our way to reaching our goal of $300,000!  Your commitment and enthusiasm are an inspiration to me and everyone affiliated with JDRF, and together I have no doubt that we’ll be able to turn Type One into Type None.

I wanted to let you know that we have had a couple personnel changes since the Walk, with both of our staff members from the Northern Nevada Branch resigning and moving on to other opportunities. I’d like to thank them for their service and wish them well in all of their future endeavors.  Despite their departures, the Northern Nevada Branch is still fully operational and fundraising for a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications as planned.

The recruitment process is underway for hiring two new staff members.  However, during this transition, there might be some days that a staff person or volunteer is not in the Branch office.  I would welcome your visit, however, please give me a call first to ensure someone is there to meet you.

As always, if you have any questions about our Chapter or the Branch, please don’t hesitate to contact me at 775-332-2779 or
