About Us

JDRFAwareHello and welcome to Juvenile Diabetes Research Focus & Awareness. Our team consists of professionals from different disciplinary backgrounds. Our professional team manages this site in order to give you the latest information on diabetes research.

Our journey started when our founders, Mark and Anne, lost their daughter, Julie due to diabetes 1. Diabetes is a disease which may strike both children and adults. It happens when one’s pancreas produces very little insulin or no insulin at all. Insulin is a hormone that helps store and use the sugar from the food we eat and therefore control the blood glucose level. As of now, there is no cure to diabetes. Therefore, in most cases, people with certain type of diabetes need to manage their diet and life style.

Our site is dedicated to bring all the newest information about the latest research in diabetes. Hope this site brings some light to those who need it.
