More Info

We are excited to announce our celebrity speaker this year: Miss Idaho Sierra Sandison. Sierra has become a role model ever since she openly and proudly wore her insulin pump on the national Miss America stage during the swimsuit competition in 2014. This moment launched the viral #showmeyourpump social media trend as other T1Ds also proudly displayed their pumps. Sierra’s attendance is sponsored by Tandem Diabetes Care.

As a participant in this year’s JDRF TypeOneNation Summit, you will hear from leading scientists and medical experts on leading edge research updates and latest treatment advances. You will be able to visit with our industry partners to see the most up-to-date technology and tools dedicated to helping you live better, healthier lives with diabetes.

While the parents/caregivers are attending the main program, JDRF Kids Camp will host children with T1D ages 5-12 for a fun-filled day while learning the importance of diabetes self-management under the guidance and watchful eye of our trained JDRF Kids Camp medical personnel and volunteers. Once again, a sibling or BFF is invited to attend as well!

JDRF Teen Central is back again – bigger, brighter, and more fun than ever! This cool ‘hang out’ for youth with T1D ages 13-19 will offer opportunities to learn the latest in diabetes-related technology, share stories and experiences with peers, ask questions and trade tips on managing T1D through the teenage years. JDRF Teen Central is directed by medical personnel and trained volunteers. Once again, a sibling or BFF is invited to attend!
