The working group is open to anyone in the diabetes community who is from a historically racial and ethnic excluded community. We also encourage CoCWG members to be engaged in their local Chapter and see themselves as #insulin4all advocates. If you’re interested in joining the CoCWG and are not yet connected with your State #insulin4all Chapter, we will connect you!
The CoCWG is co-led by a T1I team member and a Co-Leader selected from the CoCWG. The group meets monthly on the second Tuesday at 4pm PT/7pm ET to 5pm PT/8pm ET. The meetings focus on at least one of these categories: support, education, community partnerships, internal practices, or policy priorities.
