Mid-Atlantic New Family Rally

December 6, 2021
7:30 pm (Eastern Time)

New to T1D or JDRF? Join us to connect, learn and engage! You'll hear from local volunteers about the power of the T1D community and how you can impact JDRF’s mission through the JDRF One Walk. Our special guest is Sapna Bhambhani, a field medical scientist with Provention Bio and a T1D mom and volunteer, who will share information about having family members screened for T1D autoantibodies and the screening tools currently available. After the program, we invite you to join a breakout room to chat more about T1D screening & research, the One Walk program, or newly diagnosed resources. Thanks to Provention Bio for their generous support of this event.
