Currently, diabetes affects approximately 285 million people worldwide. This number is expected to increase to 438 million by 2030. In Canada, over three million children, adolescents, and adults have some form of diabetes, and more than 300,000 of those are living with T1D. Research funded by JDRF has led to many landmark advances in T1D science. We aggressively translate discoveries into treatments, drugs, and therapies that help people with T1D live healthier lives now, while we work toward a cure.
As a member of the JDRF team, you will be given the opportunity not only to contribute, but to help shape this very process.
