Our goal is to find a cure for T1D within the next 15 years—in time to help those currently living with type 1. A Champion encourages members of the T1D community to take action for a cure by using their voice to influence others. By engaging in one or more of the activities listed below, you are recognized as a leader and Champion in the fight to find a cure for type 1 diabetes. Together, our voice can be heard!
Enlist type 1 diabetics, their families, friends and co-workers to sign the JDCA More for a Cure petition to influence the ADA and JDRF to increase funding levels for cure research.
As a leader in the search for a cure, you will help expand the reach of our message and engage other members of the T1D community to implement change that will yield results.
JDCA Champions like yourself amplify our collective voices and help to make our dreams of a Practical Cure for T1D a reality. By engaging your friends, families, and coworkers, you can help us achieve widespread support for an increase in cure research spending. Together we can change the T1D landscape by solidifying a commitment from the major T1D non-profits to prioritize cure research funding.
