"The Millennium Hotel in downtown St. Louis was THE place to be at the end of February for families touched by T1D - type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes, said M. Marie Davis, Executive Director JDRF Greater Missouri and Southern Illinois Chapter. "Thanks to all our amazing volunteers who kept our kids safe and happy in activity rooms while parents and grandparents networked, learned new disease management techniques and heard the latest in research updates."
JDRF is the leading global organization focused on T1D research. Since its founding in 1970, JDRF has awarded more than $1.7 billion in direct funding to improve the lives of people who have T1D and keep them as healthy as possible as we search for a cure.
