2019 World Diabetes Day: Assessing the Global Burden

Every year on World Diabetes Day (November 14) there are events and activities which raise awareness about diabetes. People participate in rides, walks and open houses. Organizations light historic buildings and landmarks in blue, which is the official color for diabetes awareness. As we raise awareness, we both celebrate the successes of the T1D community and note the areas where we must see change in order to improve the lives of everyone living with the disease.

The JDCA has also chosen today to announce we have officially surpassed our goal of 250,000 signatures for the 5th Annual More for a T1D Cure Petition! A quarter of a million signatures is an incredible show of support from all those in the T1D community interested in achieving a Practical Cure.

Thank You to Everyone who Signed!
