Details and How to Apply
JDRF Children’s Congress, our highest profile advocacy event, is held every two years in the nation’s capital. Next year’s event will take place from July 8 – 10, 2019. The event includes more than 160 children, ages 4 to 17, from across the nation and around the world who travel to Washington, D.C., to meet with Members of Congress and participate in activities to educate the nation’s top lawmakers and staff about type 1 diabetes (T1D). The delegates in JDRF’s Children’s Congress enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help our governmental representatives understand what life with T1D is like and why research to fund life-changing therapies until a cure can be found is so critical. The children return with invaluable experiences and memories that shape them for years to come. Visit cc.jdrf.org to apply
