The Epsilon Pi Alpha Fraternity of Gustavus Adolphus College will be hosting "Diabetes Awareness Week" in May 2010 to provide awareness about Type 1 Diabetes. As part of our Diabetes Awareness Week, we will be hosting a benefit dinner and silent auction to raise money for Insulindependence. We would like to extend an invitation to you to join us for this event and help support the endeavors of current students and fellow alumni.

Insulindependence (iD) is a nonprofit organization founded by Gustavus Adolphus College and Epsilon Pi Alpha Alumni, Peter Nerothin, based in San Diego, California. His programs have been highlighted in publications such as The New York Times, US News & World Report, and Triathlete Magazine, among numerous others. Insulindependence has also been covered by ABC and CNBC, as well as more than 70 TV news websites.

The mission of iD is to inspire people with diabetes to set personal fitness goals, educate them on adaptive management strategies through hands-on experience, and equip them to explore their individual capacities. Currently, Insulindependence is focusing on expanding its outreach and programming as it continues to develop Phrendo, an innovative athlete training network with built-in diabetes management tools.
