Get Involved

It matters not which organization you choose — just choose one! Being part of JDRF for 14 years has brought me a feeling of involvement, power, education, friendship and hope that is hard to explain. Other great choices: World’s largest non-government funder of Type 1 diabetes research. World headquarters are in NYC, but one of the 82 local chapters is bound to be near you. The American Diabetes Association link. A world leader in helping folks live with diabetes, including top-notch help for school advocacy and more. A remarkable powerhouse founded by a dad of a girl with diabetes. Check them out for forums, information, support and even amazing in person events like their Friends for Life Program. Located in Miami but making an impact around the world on cure-based research.
