Leadership Council

Our Community Empowers Us

Joslin Diabetes Center's Leadership Council is comprised of influential and esteemed individuals who are dedicated to advancing the strategic and philanthropic priorities across Joslin Diabetes Center. 

Appointed by the Chair of the Leadership Council, the Council is dedicated to: 

  • Learning about the latest research and care initiatives at Joslin
  • Committing funds to support diabetes research and care at Joslin 
  • Serving as ambassadors for Joslin in the community

The Leadership Council hosts two educational events each year (spring and fall) to hear from Joslin’s leaders, innovators and caregivers. Through their philanthropic donations, members are valued partners in Joslin’s mission to prevent, treat and cure diabetes. In their lifetime, Leadership Council members have given over $1.3 million to support diabetes research and care at Joslin.

Through past presentations, the Leadership Council has explored Joslin’s research and clinical care divisions. Specific topics have included the Young Adult Program, the Center for Cell-Based Therapy for Diabetes, and Joslin's comprehensive strategic vision for its innovative care and research model.
