I am part of study for SickKids, for the finding a cure program for type diabetes. So i had chances to help with the study and other activity's SickKids an JDRF ( junior Diabetes Research Foundation). I help out with walkathons, fundraisers and other programs that happen. I worked with a few other teenagers around my age for about three months at a time. Everyone who ran the program was very welcoming, making me wish i could work with them more. The hardest part was just getting back and fourth to SickKids or where ever they had planned a program or a activity, but the best part was teach younger children who just got diagnosed with Type One diabetes, what it is and how they can help to take care of it. I helped children learn how to count carbohydrates and give themselves their insulin.
