We are thrilled to provide this unique opportunity for education and dialogue with leading experts and researchers in the type 1 diabetes (T1D) field 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 and Teen Track with age-appropriate guest speakers and activities. In 2014, the TypeOneNation Research Summit attracted over 800 individuals from the Mid-Atlantic region and we are looking forward to another great year!
New this year — “Taking T1D to School” session.
Admission is FREE with suggested donation. Buffet lunch is provided. Registration is REQUIRED and opens here on January 7TH.
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. Sponsorship opportunities are available here and 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.

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.
