About Rockin' Docs
Doors open at 7:00 PM. All profits generated will go to JDRF. Rockin’ Docs raised almost $55,000 last year to bring our eight-year total to over $350,000! With support from JDRF, much progress has been achieved in recent years (including steps towards realization of an artificial pancreas and encapsulation of transferred islet cells), but there is still much more to accomplish on the road to finding a cure.
There will be several outstanding artists that will be performing this year, each containing doctors from the Philadelphia area who pledged their time for this worthy cause.
This annual event was conceived and created by Kenneth Einhorn M.D, Jeremy Jaffe M.D. (diagnosed with T1D over 30 years ago), and Nancy Wolfson—all of whom are parents of children with T1D.
