To help our community stay healthy during the coronavirus pandemic, JDRF will be reimagining events through 6/30/20 rather than hosting in person gatherings – details to follow.

Type One Nation Summit

August 15, 2020, Tigard, OR
10:00 am - 3:45 pm

***UPDATE*** Given the heightened levels of concern in Oregon/SW Washington area over the coronavirus and our prioritization of the well-being of our community, we are postponing JDRF’s Type One Nation Summit originally scheduled to be held this Saturday March 14, 2020. Please mark your calendars for our new date, Saturday August 15, 2020 at the Embassy Suites at Washington Square. I hope this new date still works for your calendar. We have made this decision out of an abundance of caution and caring and in partnership with volunteer leadership on both local and national levels. We’re so pleased that we were able to reschedule and look forward to seeing you in August when we can focus on learning, sharing and enjoying each other’s company at this extraordinary event. Please know that JDRF is intensely monitoring the global coronavirus situation with an eye on how we can best ensure the well-being of our staff and community.
