5/9/13: I’ve just about finished up my first week at JDRF and I’m loving every minute of it! I’ve learned a lot about the organization, as well as what I like about this particular office setting. Some of my tasks this week have included shipping “Bags of Hope” (outreach gifts for the families of children diagnosed with type 1 diabetes), updating a spreadsheet to keep track of which families come to which events and today I started researching pediatricians offices in central and eastern Massachusetts to begin working on an outreach project. Next week will be busy because the annual Boston Gala is Saturday May 18. I get to work at this event, too, which will be a great eye opener to how special events truly run!
I’m very lucky to have been given this opportunity to work in such a great organization and I’m looking forward to seeing how the next five weeks will go!
