Focus Group Opportunity!


One of our JDRF corporate partners, Xeris Pharmaceuticals, is striving to unlock the full potential of glucagon. No one knows better than you the demands of managing potential severe hypoglycemia. Xeris wants to learn from your experience and expertise and apply those lessons to their work. To do so, they will be hosting two focus groups at our upcoming TypeOneNation Summit. One is for individuals (age 16+) with T1D. The other is for caregivers of individuals living with T1D (parents, spouses, partner, co-workers, extended family). Parents of children under the age of 6 are asked to leave their child with another caregiver while they attend the session. Each participant will be offered payment in appreciation for their time.

During the focus groups, you will:

Discuss how severe hypoglycemic events, including a fear of a hypoglycemic event, impact you and your loved ones’ lives

Gain insight into how Xeris can best partner with the diabetes community

Help design how Xeris brings their investigational glucagon pen to market

Please contact Erica Farr at or 616-957-1838 if you are interested in participating in the group for caregivers or as an individual with T1D (16 yrs and older). Please provide preferred name, email, phone number and dietary restrictions.

Lunch Provided!
