What We Can Be Proud of in 2022 – Thank you for helping us move our mission forward!

As we come to the end of the year, we observe the history-making impact that supporters like you helped make in type 1 diabetes (T1D) research and advocacy. From the FDA approval of the first disease-modifying therapy Tzield™ (teplizumab-mzwv) for use in delaying the onset of T1D, to our partnership with Civica and manufacturing low-cost insulin, to advancements made by Vertex in stem cell-based therapies, to the first-of-its-kind T1D Index tool for tracking the disease worldwide, there is much to celebrate.

Gifts that Give Back

Giving to others has always been a hallmark of the holiday season and this year, you can spread joy by supporting the T1D community through gifts that give back and help drive JDRF’s mission forward. Read more.

►►►Please consider making an end-of-year donation to JDRF to help improve lives and fund critical research for T1D. Thank you!

Happy Holidays and Warmest Wishes for a Happy New Year!

The JDRF NorCal Chapter sends our seasons greetings and gratitude to our community of supporters and friends. We hope the new year is filled with good health and happiness.

All JDRF offices will be closed from 2pm on Friday, December 23 through January 2, reopening on Tuesday, January 3, 2023.
