POSTPONED! 2020 JDRF LI TypeOneNation Summit

March 21, 2020, Melville, NY
8:00 am - 2:00 pm


IMPORTANT UPDATE: We have been closely monitoring the national outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19). While the risk of contracting the virus in the United States remains low, the situation locally is changing very quickly, and we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Long Island TypeOneNation Summit out of an abundance of caution for the health, safety, and well-being of the JDRF and T1D community. We are exploring options to reschedule the event and will be in touch with more details once available.
