Join the JDRF Capital and Maryland chapters for the 10th annual
JDRF TypeOneNation Summit!
Saturday, March 7, 2020
Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center

The TypeOneNation event is still happening on Saturday, March 7! JDRF asks that we all follow guidelines set by the CDC which urge anyone who has traveled to – or lives with someone who has visited – mainland China, Italy, Iran, Japan, South Korea or Germany in the past 14 days to not attend large gatherings. The CDC also is urging, as this is a fast-spreading illness, that if you or someone in your household isn’t feeling well, you should not attend large events and gatherings.

We sincerely hope this does not apply to you, but if it does or if you do not plan to attend for any reason, there is no need to notify JDRF.


The JDRF Capital and Maryland chapters cordially invite you to join other individuals, families, and caregivers affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) at all life stages for a day of education and connection at the 2020 TypeOneNation Summit. Talk to experts about research advances, meet with other attendees to exchange ideas, and participate in discussions important to you. Children ages 5-18 may join the Youth Program and enjoy activities and educational programming throughout the day. The Vendor Hall, showcasing the latest in diabetes management tools and technology, local support and educational resources, and diabetes camps, will be open all day. 

Whether you are family who is dealing with a new diagnosis, an adult who has lived with T1D for many years, a grandparent or caregiver, or a diabetes healthcare professional,  you are assured to find value in this unique event. In 2019, our TypeOneNation Summit attracted almost 1,000 individuals from the Mid-Atlantic region.

There is no cost to attend the TypeOneNation Summit, however advanced registration is required. Registration will open on Friday, January 10th.
