WHAT: JDRF, the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes (T1D) research, will host the TypeOneNation Summit on Sunday, April 23, 2017. JDRF has assembled a top-notch team of medical experts, diabetes educators, and inspirational speakers, who themselves struggle with diabetes, to teach and better educate anyone who interacts with and/or cares for an insulin-dependent diabetic person. People impacted by T1D who attend the TypeOneNation Summit will learn how to better care for themselves or that special person, who struggles with the difficulty of managing diabetes. Keynote speaker, Kerri Sparling, blogger and author of “Six Until Me” and “Balancing Diabetes”, aims to spread a message of hope versus fear through the power of social media, advocacy, and storytelling.
