National Diabetes Awareness Month 2022
Forward celebrates the progress we’ve made, and the progress that’s to come. It also reminds us to think about WHAT and WHO this progress is FOR:
For those living with type 1 diabetes and those who love someone with type 1 diabetes, looking Forward is what fuels our vision and mission to cure, prevent and treat type 1 diabetes and its complications. It’s a reminder of what and who we are fighting for, and that together, we move #ForwardAs1.
Every day, the JDRF community is moving #ForwardAs1 to improve the lives of people living with T1D.
Here’s how you can help us make a difference this November.
Learn and Share About T1D
Spread awareness of the signs and symptoms of T1D, dispel myths and explain the differences between type 1 and type 2.
If you’re sharing on social use the hashtag #ForwardAs1!
Become an Advocate
Use your voice to help secure Federal funding for important diabetes research, inform health and regulatory policy, and improve the quality of life for those affected by T1D until we find cures.
Connect with T1D Experts and Peers
Join us for our last two TypeOneNation Virtual Summit sessions of 2022! On November 3rd, we’re talking T1D nutrition tips & tricks and on December 1st, we’ll hear from community members about the highs and lows of life with T1D.
Learn About T1D Screening
Being diagnosed with T1D means a lifetime of dependence on insulin and careful management to avoid dangerous blood-sugar highs and lows. Now, families can use screening to begin to determine their T1D risk early, so they have time to plan and prepare.
Support T1D Research by Giving
There are so many ways to support the work we’re doing together – give online, get physical, be a social butterfly, or dream up your own fundraiser, there’s something for everyone!
Act to Help Find Cures
The many advances in medical devices and treatments for people living with T1D exist thanks to clinical trials—a mission-critical part of our work at JDRF. JDRF makes participation easy with our Clinical Trials Connection online tool. Check it out for yourself and inspire others to do the same!
Get inspired by the T1D community this NDAM and share your own story.
