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 2015, 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 5th for our 6th Annual JDRF Summit!

Other Upcoming JDRF Events
It was my first time attending an event like this and I loved it. I’ve raised money for JDRF through the Walk for the Cures, but this event proved how valuable those donations were, showcasing how their funds are put to good use, and encouraged me to keep supporting and donating to JDRF.
I found it quite inspiring to be around so many other Type 1s, the majority of whom were young adults and children.
“The [Greater Chesapeake and Potomac] Chapter has held these events in the Washington, D.C., area several times previously, and I’ve been fortunate enough to have attended each one…” “…informative and very motivating, and would like to see even more chapters around the country organizing similar get-togethers.
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.
