The Importance of Advocacy
Type 1 diabetes research is only possible through the hard work and support of advocates. JDRF Advocates use the most powerful tools they have — their own personal stories — to communicate the financial, medical and emotional costs of T1D to our nation’s leaders. JOIN US! Use your voice to help secure Federal funding for important diabetes research, inform health and regulatory policy, and improve the quality of life for those affected by T1D until we find cures. Share your JDRF experience and invite others to become advocates too!
