JDRF TypeOne Nation Summit: April 29, 2015 WDIV TV Appearance with Dr. Whitehouse and a Naturally Sweet Sisters Mom

Dr. Fred W. Whitehouse

Excited to share that I will be helping JDRF Michigan East Chapter and the talented Dr. Fred W. Whitehouse with promoting the 8th Annual JDRF TypeOne Nation Summit on Wednesday, April 29th on WDIV, Detroit, with a live television interview around 11:00 a.m., EST.  

If you do not know Dr. Whitehouse, I wanted to share a fantastic overview of this true T1D pioneer.
It is easy to forget the leaps and bounds we, as a society, have made in improving T1D care since the invention of insulin in 1922.  Dr. Whitehouse has lived through each of modern advancements and continues to advocate for patients around the world.  Dr. Whitehouse knows, despite the current improvements, we are not done until there is a cure for T1D.

Rather than re-writing history, I am including a link to an exceptional article written by Mike Hoskins, Diabetes Mine. 

We hope you can view the broadcast, but even more, we hope that you will be at the Summit on May 9th, 2015!  Be sure to register today!

TypeOne Nation Summit Program Details...
There are special events for ages 12-19 at our JDRF Teen Central as well as for kids ages 5-12 at our Kid's Camp. 
A continental breakfast and light lunch are provided - at no cost - as well as cutting edge information on treatments, better care and research.
I'm more than happy to help answer questions regarding the Summit, Kid's Camp and Teen Central - so feel free to send them my way. Thanks to the hardwork and ongoing planning efforts and talent of Senior Outreach Manager, Denise Pentescu and Michele De La Iglesia and all of the JDRF SE Michigan staff, especially Executive Director Kate Cahill Durak, and along with the multitudes of volunteers including the doctors, nurses and vendors on the Planning Committee, this has been the largest conference in the US. JDRF SE Michigan is making an impact in the lives of people living with T1d around the world!!

When you support JDRF, you are supporting the goal of improving lives on the way to a cure for type 1 Diabetes. Thank you from our family and everyone else out there! We appreciate it! heart emoticon
