The Summit is a free, all-day educational and networking opportunity for the type 1 diabetes (T1D) community. The only event of its kind in the MD/DC/Northern VA area, the Summit brings together T1D experts, physicians, and researchers to share their expertise on the latest treatments, breakthroughs in research, and the psycho-social aspects of living (and thriving!) with T1D. After each presentation, audience members have the opportunity to ask questions and there is also a panel discussion at the conclusion of the program. Additionally, the event features a robust exhibit hall of vendors representing the latest in diabetes management technology, resources, products, and research, as well as a childrens’ program for ages 5+ and a Teen Track for ages 13+. Whether you are family who is dealing with a new diagnosis, or an adult who has lived with T1D for 50 years, you are assured to find value in this unique opportunity. In 2014, the TypeOneNation Research Summit attracted over 800 individuals from the Mid-Atlantic region and we are looking forward to another great year! We hope to see you March 7th for our 5th Annual JDRF Summit!

Admission is FREE with suggested donation. Buffet lunch is provided. Registration is REQUIRED. Register Online Today.
