Together, our Quest Diagnostics team is 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. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure—yet. Your support can help change that.
A JDRF Chapter Partner for 20 years, Quest has a long history of providing the medical community with state-of-the art diabetes testing and diagnostics and advocating for awareness about T1D. Quest President and CEO Steve Rusckowski’s untiring efforts to support and advance JDRF’s fight for a cure for T1D earned him the Chapter’s 2015 Man of the Year Award.
Quest performs more than 14 million hemoglobin A1c tests annually. We turn our test data into insights that can help patients, their doctors, employers, and health plans take informed actions to improve outcomes.
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.
