Putting an end to T1D, one step at a time

Here at Johnson City MSMG Pediatric Endocrinology, we see everyday the effort that is required on both the patient and family to manage their diabetes. We want to show our support and let them know we are here to help make a difference! To be successful in managing and conquering a powerful disease like type one diabetes, it is crucial to combine your forces and maintain a group effort!  That is why we have partnered with our sister MSMG specialty clinics, Pediatric Neurology and Gastroenterology as well as Niswonger and East Tennessee State University. Our patients, community, and family are also encouraged to join our team! With this powerful force we will be walking to help JDRF continue to fund life-changing type 1 diabetes (T1D) research and create a world without T1D.

T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. We see the impact diabetes has on our pediatric patients everyday. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure—yet. Your support can help change that.

One of our biggest fundraisers for JDRF this year will be a spirit night with Chick-fil-A. This will occur on April 24th from 5-8 pm. When you come and order dinner and mention our practice, a portion of your sales are donated back to JDRF. But you must mention our practice! The branch that is offering this is 2103 W. Market St. Johnson City, TN 37604. Please come and support our fundraising efforts and spread the word!!

By donating or joining our team today, you can help fund research that impacts the lives of the millions of children, adults, and families challenged by T1D every day. With your support, we will help JDRF turn Type One into Type None. Please stop by and say hello at our tent at the walk. We are happy to meet new friends and say hello to old ones! Thank you.
