I Believe The Mission Of The Diabetes Research Connection Is Vital!
“Entering my fourth decade of type 1 diabetes research, it is quite remarkable to look back and see how research seeking to identify answers to the questions of how this disease develops and how the disorder could be cured have changed. No one could have envisioned the difficulty of obtaining research funding, especially for young people. For these reasons, I believe the mission of the Diabetes Research Connection is vital! It offers hope for the future of both those with type 1 diabetes and young investigators committed to making a major change possible. I fully support DRC and am committed to seeing it prosper.”
