JDRF is Founded by Parents of Children with Type 1 Diabetes

The Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, now JDRF, is founded by Lee Ducat, Carol Lurie, Erwin Lurie and a group of parents whose children have type 1 diabetes (T1D). Their conviction is clear: Through research, T1D can and will be cured. Over the next 47 years the research that JDRF supports will change the lives of people with T1D everywhere, and will bring a cure within reach.
