The mission of REACH (Recreate, Educate, Advocate, and Climb Higher) Weber is to provide a space of empowerment for youth with type 1 diabetes that promotes self-determined behaviors for a healthy lifestyle.
Our vision is to be the leader in creating flourishing communities for youth living with diabetes and their families through a year-around recreation service.
- Social Equity
Through a partnership with the Lions of Multi-District 28, Weber State University, and Primary Children’s Hospital Intermountain, our goal is to develop a year-round, community environment that inspires and supports healthy lifestyles among youth with diabetes in the Ogden/Clearfield and Salt Lake City Metropolitan Areas and their families through the Recreate, Educate, Advocate, and Climb Higher (REACH Weber) program. Using an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system, our hope is to determine REACH Weber helps with more effective Time In Range (TIR) for youth.
