SJND Student is Juvenile Diabetes Ambassador

Kobi Allston

Kobi Allston '17 is an Ambassador for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation walk at the Oakland Zoo on October 13, and she will speak at the Bay Area event in support of other teens and children with diabetes. "It makes it easier to cope with being diabetic," she said. "It helps you to forget it if you can be there for other people."

Kobi, of San Leandro, was profiled on the Cal-Hi Sports TV program for her commitment to the juvenile diabetes cause. She was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 9, but today is healthy and competes on the SJND women's varsity volleyball team.
