Children’s Congress

Diabetapedia definition: Every two years the JDRF International Chairman, Mary Tyler Moore, and over a hundred children with type 1 diabetes gather in Washington, D.C. to meet face-to-face with some of the top decision-makers in the U.S. government. The children, ages 4 to 17, represent all 50 states and the District of Columbia. As participants in JDRF’s Children’s Congress, they have a unique and empowering opportunity to help Members of Congress understand what life with type 1 diabetes is like and why research to find the cure for diabetes and its complications is critical.
