Thank You for $450 Million in T1D Research Funding through the Special Diabetes Program!

Dear [Decision Maker],

As your constituent, I want to thank you for supporting a three-year renewal of the Special Diabetes Program (SDP) in the amount of $450 million. The T1D community has benefited immensely from the SDP since it was first enacted in 1997, and the program complements many of JDRF's research priorities.

The SDP is improving lives and advancing research to treat, prevent and ultimately find cures for T1D through the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The program has helped scientists make significant advances including artificial pancreas technology, beta cell replacement techniques, improvements to continuous glucose monitors and treatments for complications of T1D like kidney disease and diabetic retinopathy. These advancements bring us closer to cures, and - in the meantime - make it easier to lead healthy lives with T1D.



Thank you again for your support.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
