Board and Staff

The SDES family is comprised of generous and supportive individuals, families, alumni, volunteers, donors, civic organizations, corporate sponsors, and leadership who share the common bond of caring and serving children and teens living with diabetes and their families. Over 375 people volunteer each year to make our many diabetes camps and community programs successful, including Board of Directors, physicians, nurses, NPs, certified diabetes educators, pharmacists, nutritionists, students, counselors, and activity leaders. SDES Community Leaders lead and assist with fundraising and family activity events.
