Introducing Our New Type 1 Diabetes Resource Center
As an organization devoted to making a difference in the lives of those with type 1 diabetes and their caretakers by funding innovative scientific researching into ways to treat, cure and prevent T1D, it’s important to us that we’re supporting those with T1D in any way we can.
In a recent survey sent to our donors, we learned that 89% felt that there is a lack of education about living with the disease, and another 89% felt that there is a lack of education about current type 1 diabetes research. 55% of those we surveyed said they felt a lack of emotional support, and 77% said they felt that the people they interact with on a daily basis don’t understand what type 1 diabetes is. Perhaps most astounding, 100% of those we surveyed agreed that there is a lack of type 1 diabetes awareness among those not living with the disease.
Additionally, we found that our donors would like to learn more about living with type 1 diabetes, and that they especially wanted to learn more about current research being done into preventing, treating and curing type 1 diabetes.
To help meet this need for diabetes awareness and education, we’re proud to present our new type 1 diabetes resources center. We’ve scoured the internet and curated the best resources we can find for those with T1D, parents and family of those diagnosed with T1D and anyone else interested in learning more about the disease.
