JDRF’s Type 1 diabetes research summit March 9, all welcome

huffpost
 Last year I moderated a wonderful event that if you live, or are going to be,  in the Washington DC vicinity on Saturday, March 9th, you should consider attending.

It’s the third annual JDRF Type 1 Diabetes Research Summit. The country’s top scientists and researchers will be sharing their studies and the latest in research.

Topics:

• Artificial Pancreas: Technology and Clinical Trials

• New Pathways for Expansion of Functional Islet Cell Mass

• Lunch / Exhibits Open/ Book Signings

• New Materials and Drug Delivery Systems for Islet Cell Encapsulation

• Commercial Development of Drug/Biological Products to Treat & Cure Type 1 Diabetes

• Panel Discussion with Speakers

Nicole Johnson, Miss America 1999 and Executive Director of Bringing Science Home at USF and international diabetes advocate, will be moderating this year. There will be an exhibit hall of T1D education, resources and technology, a Youth Program with speakers and games for the kids to play, and educational and networking opportunities with the T1D community.

Last but not least it’s FREE!

Last year the Summit attracted 600 individuals from the Eastern Seaboard, and while I’d like to think it was because I was hosting, chances are it had more to do with the speakers.

If you plan to attend, please register. And while there’s no charge, including lunch, if you want to make a small donation, it will go toward speeding research even further and faster.
