Every 20 seconds, someone in America is diagnosed with diabetes and every 7 minutes, someone dies from a diabetes-related illness (source: CDC). With over 300 researchers working every day to expand our understanding of the science behind diabetes, Joslin’s work is truly moving the needle toward a cure. There has been no disease that has personally touched my family more than diabetes and I am confident that there is no research center better equipped to eradicate diabetes than Joslin.
All of the money raised by the Team Joslin program supports the High Hopes Fund here at Joslin Diabetes Center. This fund is unrestricted and supports the Center's greatest needs. These funds ultimately contribute to Joslin’s capacity to prevent, treat and cure diabetes through cutting-edge research, comprehensive patient care and pioneering education programs.
I hope you will support my endeavour!
