A Type 1 Diabetes Dad Tells Us Why Research Matters to Him – and His Son

“We’re very excited and supportive of any organization out there that continues to do research.”

Kevin is the father of a child diagnosed with type 1 diabetes two and a half years ago. He spoke to us about how important research is to him and his family, creating new opportunities for his child – and others – to live a healthy, happy life.

Type 1 diabetes is still a life-long condition today, Kevin pointed out, but researchers, activists, and industry partners have been able to make vast strides toward a better quality of life for people living with the disease.

Helping gather data to support research is a key element of the T1D Exchange Registry – a web-based research study  that surveys and engages people with type 1 diabetes. People living with type 1 diabetes, or their legal guardians, can share experiences and contribute information to a growing data set.

The Registry aims to accelerate discovery and drug development, working alongside industry partners, academic partners, and internal research teams.

Join us in the struggle. Support the type 1 diabetes community. Help drive research that matters.
