New Year’s Resolutions that Make a Difference

You’ve rung in the New Year and you’re ready to take on 2023! JDRF offers meaningful ways to enhance your life and those of others:

  • Become a JDRF Advocate. Use your voice to help secure continued Federal funding of important diabetes research and inform health and regulatory policy. Visit jdrf.org/join and sign up for action alerts. Kids can get involved by becoming a Youth Advocacy Leader. Learn more and apply at jdrf.org/yal.
  • Join a T1D Clinical Trial. Participating in a clinical trial is a great way to contribute to curing, preventing and treating T1D and its complications. There are many studies in Northern California as well as those conducted remotely. Learn more and explore opportunities.
  • Volunteer with our Chapter! JDRF was founded by parents of children with T1D and to this day volunteers are the lifeforce of our organization. From serving on an event committee to reaching out to newly diagnosed adults and families, there are many ways to lend your time and talent. Learn more and sign up here.
