JDRF Advocacy

JDRF is pleased to share that Congress reached an agreement on a long-term renewal of the Special Diabetes Program (SDP) in the amount of $150 mil annually through September 30, 2024.

The SDP has been critical to the #T1D community, facilitating progress that improves lives and advances research to treat, prevent and ultimately find cures for T1D through the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

This important win is the direct result of our Diabetes Caucus champions U.S. Senator Susan Collins, Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Congresswoman Diana DeGette, Rep. Tom Reed, and advocates like you, who work tirelessly to advance our mission. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available!

How is your quarantine workout going? Need some inspiration?

Tune in tonight to watch American Ninja Warrior Jr and #t1dChampion Katie Bone compete! Diabetes doesn't stop her! #jdrf #strongertogether

Tune into American Ninja Warrior Jr on Friday May 15th at 6pm ET to watch #T1DChampion and #JDRFCC19 delegate Katie Bone compete! Katie has lived with type 1 diabetes (T1D) since she was 11 years old, and hasn't let it stand in her way when it comes to pursuing her passions.

"It's really important for me to keep pushing myself and be an example. It's all right to let people know that you're different. It's ok. People need to know they aren't limited, they are limitless! I'm here to show them that despite T1D, I'm moving forward and accomplishing everything I want."

Good luck, Katie!

Most people with type 1 diabetes (T1D) know they should exercise to help manage their blood glucose levels and improve their overall health. But if you need another reason, numerous studies show that regular exercise may help your immune system better fight off viruses and bacteria.
