by Tabares, Adriana Monique, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2017, 62; 10263623
Abstract (Summary)

The Juvenile Diabetes Empowerment Center is a business located in the city of Los Angeles, Ca that focuses on educating children diagnosed with diabetes mellitus about their condition. The company offers a place where children can spend an entire day learning and connecting with other children who share the same condition. Education is offered by means of formal lecture, small group discussion involving therapeutic communication, and educational video games developed using BrainPoP software. The goal of the company is to empower children living with diabetes through teaching them how to independently manage their condition effectively. The business plan gives an in-depth description of how the Juvenile Diabetes Empowerment Center operates and discusses the company’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats, and regulatory issues. Furthermore, financial assumptions are explained in detail and an excel spreadsheet is attached displaying the company’s increasing cash valuation trend during the first three years of operation. The financial development of the Juvenile Diabetes Empowerment Center will allow the company to help empower children with diabetes both physically and emotionally while continuing to grow and offer a valuable service to the community.
