Not sure if you’ve had the chance to take a look at our
recent call to action, ‘Continue
NIH Research like the Artificial Pancreas’, but it shares some great
information about how far we’ve come with research because of federal funding
programs like the Special
Diabetes Program (SDP).
However, to continue this progress, we need T1D
advocates to send
an email to their Members of Congress and remind them of the important
contributions the SDP has made towards diabetes research. See the story
below about Kerry and the artificial pancreas trial she participated in, which was
supported by the SDP, and help
make sure the SDP funded research continues:
Hasan JDRF Advocacy
We need a CURE...NOW. I have had T1D since 1977.
Being an RN and having a son with T1D, I have seen the devastating consequences of diabetes. Please support funding for research of the artificial pancreas.
Please continue this important research. I know it is helping to improve the quality of life for people who have to live with T1D.
