You can be T1D for a day.
November is Diabetes Awareness month, and you can show your support and learn more about what it's like to live with Type 1 diabetes.
Through a simple text message campaign, the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) is trying to increase awareness of T1D. During the month of November, go to jdrf.org to sign up. You'll receive up to 24 messages in one 24 hour period simulating things like blood glucose tests, insulin injections, and food choices. Things that a T1D like Jared go through day in, day out.
I challenge you to take the T1D challenge. Then come back and tell me what you learned.
