CITIZEN JOURNALISM:

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is the only major Type 1 diabetes organization focused exclusively on research. Its mission is constant - to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes and its complications through the support of research.

Since its founding in 1970 by parents of children with juvenile diabetes, the nonprofit has awarded more than $1.3 billion to Type 1 diabetes research, including $156 million in fiscal 2008. More than 85 of its expenditures go directly to research and education about research.

The foundation has been instrumental in establishing a focus on the needs of all people with Type 1 diabetes, which has helped set the world’s juvenile diabetes research agenda to find a cure, and it has witnessed significant research progress.
