Ascensia Diabetes Care
Ascensia Diabetes Care—a leading manufacturer of diabetes monitoring systems—has been a valued partner of JDRF for 19 years. Ascensia (formerly Bayer) first partnered with JDRF in 1998 by sponsoring our Bag of Hope program for families of newly diagnosed children with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Today, Ascensia is one of three companies sponsoring the JDRF T1D Care Kit, which helps newly diagnosed adults adjust to living with the disease. In addition to providing educational inserts and resources, the kit also includes a coupon for Ascensia’s CONTOUR®NEXT meter and a CONTOUR®Choice card. Ascensia further supports JDRF’s mission by serving as a member of JDRF’s Industry Advisory Panel and supporting JDRF international affiliates through the JDRF One Walk®, Gala and outreach programs.
