Group Name: JDRF – Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
Description: For over 40 years, JDRF has been searching for an end to type 1 diabetes (T1D), through both research funding and advocacy. During that time, we have always talked about a cure as a singular destination: a return to normal physiology. But today, we realize that we are engaged in a process of curing T1D – that a cure is not just a destination but also a journey along a path. And we recognize that a part of our mission must be to help those living with T1D today to live healthier, easier, and safer lives until we arrive at the end of that path.
Being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D) as an adult can be difficult. People often don’t know much about T1D, and don’t expect an adult to be diagnosed with the disease. As an adult, you already have responsibilities and tasks that you need to perform each day, and you may be feeling that diabetes will get in the way of what you want to do.
Would meeting other type 1 adults and sharing common experiences be of interest to you?
