JDRF 2019 Children’s Congress, our 11th biennial event held for children aged 4 – 17 living with type 1 diabetes (T1D), will take place in Washington, D.C. on July 8 – 10, 2019. More than 160 children from across the country and around the globe will have the unique and empowering opportunity to share their story of living with T1D to Members of Congress to help them understand why research for better treatments and a cure for T1D is so important.

In addition to explaining what it is like living with T1D during meetings with Members of Congress and their staff, you’ll build lifelong friendships with other kids with T1D from across the country and get to know JDRF’s T1D Role Models!
