You can Help Us Advocate to Cure T1D

The goal of JDCA advocacy initiatives is to drive awareness and ultimately resources to achieving 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 one 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.
