We are pleased to share with you that Congress has JUST passed a short-term, $4.52 million extension of the Special Diabetes Program (SDP) as part of a bill that funds the Federal government through December 11, 2020. Thanks to on-going engagement by advocates like you, this short-term extension allows the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to continue to drive forward critical #T1D research priorities. The SDP is an important complement to JDRF-funded research, and improves lives while moving us closer to cures. While we are grateful for this short-term patch of funding, in the coming months we will need all the help we can get to secure a 4 to 5-year renewal of the SDP, and we’ll lean on you to help us get across the finish line! Say 'thank you' to your Representative and Senators today! www.jdrf.org/thankyou4SDP
