Islets of Hope About our volunteers
If you would like to volunteer your time and talent to Islets of Hope we need:
List Moderators (will train and no technical experience required)
Become the moderator of an Islets of Hope list (we will provide you with an IOH email address) and help oversee a discussion list and report troubles to the lead moderator for action.
We also accept one-time submissions for those who do not wish to contribute on a regular basis.
You can also donate your time and talents to IPump.org.
Islets of Hope Volunteers
Lahle has been a leader in women's health advocacy issues since 1995. She has type 2 diabetes and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and her story and advocacy work has been featured in the Washington Post, Woman's Day Magazine, Web MD, as well as several books about PCOS.
When her daughter, Elizabeth was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at only age 4, Lahle switched her focus from women's health to diabetes issues. She is the founder of Islets of Hope and IPump.org, Inc., and currently serves as a volunteer CEO and board member for IPump.org, Inc.
Jeffrey Isaac Ehrlich
Mr. Ehrlich, is a cum laude graduate of the Harvard Law School, and is certified by the State Bar of California as an appellate specialist. He works tirelessly for Islets of Hope and IPump.org.
The father of a child with type 1 diabetes, Jeff has felt the sting of discrimination against his own daughter in the public school system. By offering legal advice through Islets of Hope's "Ask the Lawyer" column, he now helps others overcome their own struggles when faced with discrimination at school, the workplace, or by insurance companies.
J. Nadene Delaney
Mrs. Delaney joined the IOH team in November 2005 bringing with her more than 20 years of professional editing and support services skills. Nadene works insane hours behind the scenes tracking down broken links and pointing out all the little "boo-boos" that Lahle somehow misses when she uploads new web pages at 3 a.m.
Tarra is our volunteer technical list "czarina." She has multiple years of experience in handling large, email discussion lists and has volunteered her time to many nonprofit organizations in the past. She is a master of tact and diplomacy when it comes to dealing with complicated medical discussions in list forums that can easily turn into heated debates. Plus, she is always asking for more work!
We are fortunate to have Tarra join us at Islets of Hope.
Samuel J. Henninger
Sam is a perfect moderator for the teens list. He is the old brother of a sister with type 1. He understands diabetes and the sacrifices made by siblings of those with diabetes. He brings a gentle wit and teen perspective to our lists for teens. Sam , an honor-roll student in the 10th grade, is also an ace at problem-solving computer program crashes (yes, this has happened to us at IOH!).
Gamers may know Sam by his "alter ego," The Orange MGS."
and . . . the Miracle Four, of course!
