On March 1, 2017, JDRF Advocates from Nevada had a great meeting with new Senator Catherine Cortez Masto in Washington, D.C. and introduced her to type 1 diabetes (T1D) and JDRF’s mission. She was very eager to hear about JDRF’s work, fully endorsed JDRF’s health reform principles, and pledged her support for the reauthorization of the Special Diabetes Program (SDP). The group was very glad to hear that she plans to strongly support NIH and FDA funding for research and agreed to join the Congressional Diabetes Caucus.

Thank you, Senator Cortez Masto, for supporting your constituents affected by T1D!
