Dr. Greenbaum is the Chair of Type 1 Diabetes TrialNet, an NIH-sponsored international consortium to test disease-modifying therapies in T1D. She'll be joining the CWD team to talk about the latest developments in TrialNet research, as well as answering any questions from our community. Hear first-hand from Dr. Greenbaum how these discoveries relate to people living with T1D and how their family members have an opportunity to contribute to research dedicated to the prevention of type 1 diabetes.
