Dana Ball:

Accelerating Tomorrow’s Diabetes Innovations 

In the almost two decades I have been working for the type 1 diabetes community, we have made real progress.

But we need to move further, faster.

I’m pleased to announce a new T1D Exchange initiative intended to speed the development of innovations that will help people with type 1 diabetes. 

The Diabetes Innovation Challenge is an open competition to identify and accelerate transformational advancements in diabetes research and care. The Challenge will provide at least two awards of up to $150,000 in cash or services provided by program sponsors for next-generation diabetes solutions.

While we find new and exciting ways to advance next-generation innovations, we also continue to work closely with our partners JDRF and The Helmsley Charitable Trust on the Health Policy initiative.  We want to ensure that as we develop innovative new solutions, we also pave the path for these solutions to be both accessible and affordable to the T1D community.

Stay tuned and we will continue to keep you informed about news and progress for these exciting programs.
