State Of The Cure
This is a big day at the JDCA. For the past two months, everyone on staff has been hard at work on our biggest report of the year. Today we’re proud to release State of the Cure, a new report summarizing the year in cure progress for the four major charities. This is the first installment of an annual report series that will track progress made towards a cure and the various factors that go into it. And though it should go without saying, we’re extremely excited that you now have a chance to read it.
State of the Cure is the first report to tackle the development of a type 1 diabetes cure from a broad perspective. It monitors scientific advances and tracks funding trends and strategies at the major diabetes non-profits, including the American Diabetes Association (ADA), Diabetes Research Institute Foundation (DRIF), JDRF, Joslin Diabetes Center . How do organizations like the ADA and JDRF raise money? What are they doing with donor contributions? How do they choose which research to fund? The report addresses all of these topics.
It’s a longer report than usual, but only because it’s packed with new findings and important info. During one of the days over the upcoming weekend, you should do yourself a favor and take a look at it. There are even tips at the end for how to help push for a Practical Cure, all of which will be expanded on in an upcoming report entitled “What Can Donors Do?”
So go ahead, take a look at the report, and fire back with whatever comments and questions you have.
Until Next Time
