Many Faces, One Mission: Supporting Children, Teens, Adults, and Families

If diabetes affects your life, you’ve come to the right place. JDRF is committed to providing meaningful social, emotional, and practical support and information about type 1 diabetes (T1D), diabetes research, and how best to manage and cope with the disease during each new phase of life. JDRF is a force for finding a cure and a forum for connecting individuals and families with a common concern. Whether it is you or someone you love that has been newly diagnosed or has lived with T1D for a while, it is important to know you are not alone. JDRF staff and volunteers can help you find local and online support as well as put you in touch with others who know what you are going through.
