Annual Meeting and Awards Ceremony

On this evening, we’ll take a look ahead, as well as offer thanks to you, our volunteers and donors, for your support. Your passion and dedication illustrate our commitment to helping people who are living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) while we work toward finding ways to prevent, better treat, and ultimately cure the disease.

Please join us as we:

  • Celebrate the success of the past fiscal year and elect new volunteer leaders to our board.
  • Hear an update on JDRF’s comprehensive research efforts—including the Artificial Pancreas Project—that address the hopes and dreams of every person with T1D for the best quality of life and a cure for this disease.
  • Recognize the 2013 JDRF Boston Marathon Team for their strength and unwavering commitment to our mission.

Presenting:
Tom Brobson
National Director, Research Investment Opportunities, JDRF

Tom will share his personal experience as a study participant in a recent, real-world trial of the Artificial Pancreas system. He will explain how the system helped him manage his T1D and discuss JDRF’s efforts to accelerate the development of this innovative technology.

RSVP by contacting the JDRF office at (781) 431-0700.
