You Can Help Us Advocate to Cure T1D

The goal of JDCA advocacy initiatives is to drive awareness and resources to achieve a practical cure for T1D. Through our advocacy initiatives, we try to ensure that the large institutions—who raise the majority of money used for diabetes research and, accordingly, are the dominant forces in setting and guiding the T1D research agenda—keep their priority on finding a cure for T1D.

While this sounds obvious, during the past twenty years there has been a major shift in how the largest research institutions use their resources. In 2000, nearly 70% of all resources were used to fund type 1 diabetes medical research; today that number has dropped to 33%. Our advocacy mission is to ensure that a cure remains job one.

We invite you to participate in one of our initiatives to add your voice.
