About Us


The JDRF East Tennessee Chapter covers 47 counties in the East Tennessee area from Tri-Cities, to Knoxville, to Chattanooga. We host an annual Dream Gala in the Fall and we have three Walks to Cure Diabetes in the Spring – Knoxville, Tri-Cities, and Chattanooga. Please feel free to contact any member of the staff if you have any questions or if you would like to get involved by forming a walk team or volunteering! We’d love to have you join us and thousands of others across East Tennessee in our fight to cure diabetes!
