We are delighted to announce that Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall has agreed to become our President. The Duchess of Cornwall recently visited the Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge to learn about JDRF funded research to find the cure for type 1 diabetes.
The Duchess also took the opportunity to spend time with young people who have type 1 diabetes and learn how they live with the condition.
Her involvement will put type 1 diabetes in the spotlight and demonstrate how this challenging and serious autoimmune condition, which is often overlooked, affects thousands of children and adults across the UK.
The Presidency for the next five years will help more people understand what it is like to live with type 1 and become involved with the work that we do. JDRF would like to thank The Duchess for her support and very much look forward to working with her in the future as we work towards finding the cure.
