We are thrilled to provide this platform of educational and networking opportunities to the type 1 diabetes (T1D) community on Saturday, March 7, 2015 at no cost to the attendees. In addition to the main program, we offer an exhibit hall full of all the latest and greatest in T1D education, resources and technology, as well as a Youth Program complete with guest speakers and games. In 2013, the Summit attracted over 650 individuals from Eastern Seaboard and we are looking forward to another great year! An addition to this year’s program, will be a Q&A after each presentation in addition to the panel discussion at the end.
Admission is FREE with suggested donation! Buffet lunch is provided.
In order to ensure that vital funding continues to go directly to T1D research and to ensure that we can host similar events in the future, we would appreciate any donations you can provide to help offset the cost of this event, including the cost of lunch. Donations can be mailed anytime directly to the Greater Chesapeake and Potomac Chapter office located at: 1400 K Street, NW Suite 725 Washington, DC 20005, Attn: JDRF Summit.

We are fortunate to have Mary Kate Cary, past president of the Capitol Chapter of the JDRF, former White House speechwriter, contributing editor at U.S. News & World Report and political analyst on NPR, serve as moderator. Her daughter Annie was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes twelve years ago. For more information about Mary Kate click here.
Other Upcoming JDRF Events
I’ve been with Camp Possibilities for 10 years and have attended many conference and events revolving around diabetes and the Summit was by far the best! It was a real pleasure. Thanks, again for the opportunity to participate.
(JDRF’s) Research Summit has to be the best type 1 event of the year. Great presentation by folk dedicated to making life with diabetes better on the way to cures.
I have attended diabetes events before but never one that was focused on research for advancements in management and a cure for type 1 diabetes. I’m really glad I went.
