JDRF is offering tips to help people with Type 1 diabetes during the COVID-19 pandemic. The charity recommends following @_diabetes101 on Twitter where a group of healthcare professionals can signpost you to expert information.
JDRF is also encouraging people to read its blog to connect with the Type 1 community, including a piece about a teenager with Type 1, and his mum, who share the strategies they’ve come up with to get through lockdown. Read it HERE.
And, while big meet-ups aren’t on the agenda right now, JDRF is making the most of virtual meet-ups, which is also raising much-needed funds for research and support. The charity hosted its first fun online quiz in May, raising over £10,000, with another scheduled for 12 June. Keep up to date with more online events HERE.
