About the JDRF 2021 New Member Outreach Initiative

The JDRF 2021 New Member Outreach Initiative provides a meaningful way to forge relationships between newly seated Members of Congress and their constituents in the type 1 diabetes (T1D) community. During this all-virtual campaign,* JDRF will engage in video conferencing or phone meetings to share their personal connections to T1D, articulating the financial, medical and emotional costs of the disease.

These meetings give voice to those impacted by T1D, and highlight the essential role new Members can play in securing Federal funding for T1D research and supporting legislative, health and regulatory policy that improve the quality of life for those affected by T1D, until we find cures.

*To protect the health of our families – directly impacted by T1D – and our Members of Congress, we are conducting the entirety of this national campaign virtually.
