Join Team Nuveen and me in the fight to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes!
Hello! Proudly walking with TEAM NUVEEN in our 8th year, my family and I will be taking part in the Walk at the Mall of America on Feb 22 to help improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away.
Did you know that:
T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
Those living with T1D - no matter how young - must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a day?
Diabetes research is done at the U of Minnesota?
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered.
