We’re proud to announce that Abbott – makers of the FreeStyle Libre® 3 continuous glucose monitoring system – has been named Presenting Sponsor of our 2022 JDRF Hope Gala to be held on September 24th at The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco.

“JDRF and Abbott are aligned in our missions, improving lives at all ages and stages. We are extremely grateful for their high-level support of the 2022 JDRF Hope Gala,’’ said Kellee Hearn, Executive Director of the JDRF Northern California Chapter.

Abbott is a global health care leader that helps people live their best lives through good health. The company’s diabetes care business, which makes the FreeStyle Libre portfolio, the most widely used continuous glucose monitor in the world, is located in Alameda, CA. For more than 15 years Abbott has been a highly valued partner of JDRF and of the JDRF Northern California Chapter. The company’s latest partnership with our chapter as Presenting Sponsor of our Hope Gala comes after a long history of supporting various outreach events including our local One Walk with a corporate team,  sneaker sales and matching gifts. In 2019, JDRF honored Abbott with the Impact Award at our Summer Classic event in Livermore and has remained committed to inviting our organization into its corporate culture and strategic initiatives to help our community.

“Abbott greatly appreciates JDRF’s support to improve policies that ensure therapies are affordable and accessible. We share a similar belief that the best healthcare solution is the one that helps the many, not the few. This belief has been the foundation for our innovation pipeline and continues with our latest FreeStyle Libre 3 system,” said Badia Boudaiffa, Divisional Vice President of Abbott’s diabetes care business.
