Hey Juvenators,

Here is your Friday FIve!

1. Join the JDRF on November 14 for a day of Type 1 Talk.  It’s time to talk about diabetes–about what’s important to you, how JDRF’s work can help, and what they can do better. The JDRF would like to partner with you to help build a stronger diabetes community, both online and offline. JDRF’s Type 1 Talk, is a special live
streaming presentation from JDRF staff and volunteers. They will be
addressing topics and answering questions that YOU submitted. (The topics have just been announced!)
