More than 700 attendees, joined us at TypeOneNation Boston on Saturday, March 17. The day was educational and motivating, and we hope that attendees were able to connect with other individuals and families in the type 1 diabetes (T1D) community.
This year’s summit was made possible in part by the generous support of our National Premier Sponsors: Dexcom and Lilly Diabetes. In addition, we extend our sincere thanks to our National Supporting Sponsors, Medtronic and Novo Nordisk; our Local Champion Sponsor, Livongo; and our National Vendor and Kid Zone Sponsor, OmniPod/Insulet Corporation. A big thank you to our vendors and community partners as well.
We are extremely grateful to all of our speakers and panelists for sharing their stories and expertise with our attendees! A special thank you to our keynote speaker Nicole Johnson, DrPH, MPH, MA and Elle Shaheen for her performance of her one-act play, Dimples and Diabetes. Thanks also to our speakers and panelists: Elias Ashooh, Robert Barry, Scott Bissinger, Persis Commissariat, Stacey Cunnington, Brandon A. Denson, Anna Floreen, Aimee Folger, Kate Garvey, Laura Gee, Anna Lukes, Charlies O’Connell, Ellen O’Donnell, Kelly Reilly, and Stefany Shaheen.
Finally, we wish to thank the members of our Board, Outreach, Ride, Walk, and Young Leadership Committees, and our event day volunteers for their dedicated support of JDRF and for all the help in making the day a huge success!
There are so many ways you can become or remain involved with JDRF to help us achieve our vision of a world without T1D. You can contribute in a way that works for you! Please consider joining us at any of our upcoming events:
