We are thrilled to provide this platform of educational and networking opportunities to the type 1 diabetes (T1D) community 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 2012, the Summit attracted 600 individuals from Eastern Seaboard and we are looking forward to another great year!
Admission is FREE with suggested donation!
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 made by clicking Donate in the menu above, in the final step of the registration process or on site the day of the Summit. They can also be mailed anytime directly to the JDRF Capitol Chapter office located at: 1400 K Street, NW Suite 725 Washington, DC 20005,
Attn: JDRF Summit.

We are fortunate to have Nicole Johnson, DrPH (Candidate), MPH, MA, Miss America 1999, Executive Director of Bringing Science Home at USF and International Diabetes Advocate, serve as moderator. Nicole was diagnosed with T1D when she was 19 years old. For more information about Nicole click here.
Other Upcoming JDRF Events
(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.
