JDRF is the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Driven by passionate, grassroots volunteers connected to children, adolescents, and adults with the disease, JDRF is the largest charitable supporter of T1D research. The goal of JDRF is to improve the lives of every person affected by T1D by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing the disease. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners who share this goal.
Guided by our vision of cure, treat, and prevent, JDRF-funded research encompasses T1D at every life-stage: stopping or slowing its progression in people who are newly diagnosed; reversing it in those who have lived with the disease for years; avoiding or reversing complications; and preventing the disease in people at risk and in future generations.
Since its founding in 1970, JDRF has awarded more than $1.6 billion to T1D research, including $116 million in FY2011. More than 80 percent of JDRF's expenditures directly support research and research-related education. Past JDRF research efforts have helped to significantly improve the care of people with this disease, and have expanded the critical scientific understanding of T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered.
The Type One Family Network is an online support and education group for families that are living with Type 1 diabetes in the Central and North Texas areas.
Not only does this group chat daily online but they also have several get togethers throughout the year! If you are interested in getting to know other families living with type one in your area come join us!!
We understand that the diabetes community is a busy community, so we feel that an online group will allow more people to connect more often.
