The Power of Us: 50 Years and Counting
JDRF was founded in 1970 by two moms determined to help not just their children, but everyone with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Our community grew to include scientists, lobbyists, celebrities and children collecting coins at school – all determined to improve lives and find cures. Bound by a will stronger than the disease, this year during National Diabetes Awareness Month (NDAM) we will take a look at the power of our community and remind each other of how far we’ve come in the fight to cure T1D.
Celebrate NDAM all November long!
