My child has type 1 diabetes. How can they be a part of this?
The JDRF Elf Application has closed for this year. Stay tuned to find out who the elves are! If you are interested in applying in the future, the application process takes place in the summer months and includes both a written portion and an interview.
What is type 1 diabetes?
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone people need to get energy from food. T1D strikes both children and adults at any age and suddenly. Its onset has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. Though T1D’s causes are not yet entirely understood, scientists believe that both genetic factors and environmental triggers play a role. JDRF is the leading supporter of research to find cures for T1D.
