About JDRF
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF’s strength lies in its exclusive focus and singular influence on the worldwide effort to end T1D.

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults suddenly. It has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. There is nothing you can do to prevent it. And, at present, there is no cure.

JDRF works every day to change the reality of this disease for millions of people — and to prevent anyone else from ever knowing it — by funding research, advocating for government support of research and new therapies, ensuring new therapies come to market and connecting and engaging the T1D community. Founded by parents determined to find a cure for their children with T1D, JDRF expanded through grassroots fundraising and advocacy efforts to become a powerhouse in the scientific community with dozens of U.S. locations and six international affiliates. JDRF has funded more than $2 billion in research to date and made significant progress in understanding and fighting the disease.

Founded in 1970 as the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, the name was later changed to emphasize how the organization planned to end the disease, adding a word to become the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Today, an equal number of children and adults are diagnosed every day — approximately 110 people per day, so a few years ago, the name was changed to JDRF:

* To remove the misconception that T1D is only a childhood disease
* To acknowledge that nearly 85 percent of people living with the disease are over age 18
* To reinforce our commitment to funding research that improves life for people at all ages and all stages of the disease
