Atlanta Partner Jennifer Odom recently completed her two-year term as chair of the Board of Camp Kudzu Inc., a nonprofit established 20 years ago to support children and teens living with Type 1 diabetes.
The life-altering diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes, an incurable autoimmune disorder rendering the body incapable of producing insulin, can be isolating and overwhelming and add new and critical tasks to a child’s daily routine. Day-to-day diabetes management requires the entire family, from round-the-clock blood sugar monitoring and counting carbohydrates to dosing insulin with each meal or snack.
Camp Kudzu’s mission is to educate, empower and inspire children and teens living with Type 1 diabetes through overnight summer camp, day camp (for 5-8 year olds), family camp, teen retreat and other year-long programming.
In celebration of Camp Kudzu’s 20th anniversary, Odom has been interviewed by numerous outlets. She and her daughter Emily were interviewed on an Atlanta morning news channel, Odom was interviewed for a radio podcast, and she was quoted in articles in the Atlanta paper and a local paper. Odom is also co-chairing the nonprofit’s 20th anniversary gala.
