Advocates Make the Voice of JDRF Stronger

Advocates Make the Voice of JDRF Stronger

“Every day, JDRF Advocacy brings together people who have type 1 diabetes (T1D), or a connection to someone with diabetes who are interested in making their voices heard. Across Canada, more than 3,200 JDRF advocates are working together to build bonds among those who are personally affected by T1D with their elected officials. These relationships strengthen our community, provide support for those who are living with diabetes, and deliver JDRF’s message – the need for a cure and the need to accelerate the pace of research through funding from governments.

Thank you JDRF Advocates for your continued support, passion and dedication to JDRF and our mission to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. Together, one advocate at a time, we are making the voice of JDRF stronger.”
