“The facts are staggering, just as the overwhelming evidence demonstrating how underserved the T1D community is when it comes to psychological services.  Behavioral health services are desperately needed by individuals and families, and we have an unprecedented opportunity to create pioneering programs that integrate these services into the comprehensive, holistic care of people with T1D.” – Nicole Johnson, Dr. PH, National Director of Mission, JDRF
