I just got the official heads-up about the launch of something the JDRF has been cooking up behind the scenes for some time: a new social networking site for young adults with Type 1 diabetes called Juvenation.org. Check it out, and join the beta!
The site leader and moderator is our very own Gina Capone of the DiabetesTalkFest. Wow, that girl gets around!
The site looks pretty amazing with a full forum, media area, and blogs, and also a variety of "groups" tailored to different interests. If you can't find a group that you want, you can of course create your own.
Note: The site is now in beta testing mode and still under construction over the next couple of weeks. So if you come across an occasional bug, you can let the team know in a group called site bugs.
I'm not exactly sure what the cut-off age is for "young adults," btw. Present company surely excluded. Also, the JDRF claims that this is "the first ever online destination geared toward Young Adults with Type 1 diabetes," which isn't exactly the case. There's also YoungDiabetics.org, a pretty nice little community in its own right.
Anyway, good for the JDRF for finally embracing some adults — maybe they'll get to us 30+ Type 1s next.
