Herbert Family Program for
Young Adults with Type 1 Diabetes
The Herbert Family Program focuses on meeting the unique needs of young
adults with type 1 diabetes (age 18-30). The program addresses the financial,
psychological, social and physical changes that challenge not only the
young adult but also their family and support system.
If you are interested in the Herbert Family Program and/or our events please

The Mary & Dick Allen Diabetes Center and CHOC Children’s Hospital
realize that teens and young adults have different needs than children
and require efficient processes when transitioning to managing their diabetes.
Our cooperating teams work together to provide you:
- freedom & control in living a healthy life as you enter adulthood
- continuation of excellent care
- education and support
Join the Herbert Program the first Friday of every month for a chance
to connect and share stories with other young adults with type 1 diabetes.
