Friend of CWD

The JDRF – Beyond Type 1 Alliance provides greater support for those impacted by type 1 diabetes (T1D) by tapping into the combined power of JDRF, the leading global organization funding T1D research, and Beyond Type 1, the organization with the largest online community of any diabetes nonprofit.

The work of the Alliance centers around three core pillars: community programs, advocacy, and communications and education.  

Come by our virtual booth to learn more about the Alliance, find out ways you can get further involved in the T1D community, and participate in exciting chats!
