ALIGNED Proudly Supports The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
ALIGNED Insurance believes that it is a privilege to handle our clients insurance needs and that it is our corporate social responsibility to give generously and regularly to support the great work charitable and not profits organizations do every day across Canada.
As part of our commitment to give regularly, every month an ALIGNED Advocate selects a Canadian charity of their choice and ALIGNED makes a donation to that organization on their behalf. In recognition of the great work they do Daphne Parsons selected The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation for January, 2016.
More About Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s Work
“For over 40 years, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation has been a global leader in the search for an end to type 1 diabetes (T1D), through both research funding and advocacy. During that time, we have always talked about a cure as a singular destination: a return to normal physiology.
JDRF’s research is committed to improving the lives of every person with T1D and to curing this disease. JDRF’s research goals are realized by the projects being supported in three basic areas: Cure, Treat, Prevent
- Cure therapies (Restoring a person’s insulin-producing capability and halting or reversing the body’s misguided immune attack on the pancreas);
- Treatment therapies (Developing new devices and therapies that transform the way people with T1D treat the disease today in order to help them live healthier lives now and in the future); and,
- Preventive therapy research (Keeping future generations from getting T1D or stopping the disease process before it damages the pancreas).
These therapeutic areas are a bold step in our promise to move the diabetes research landscape towards a cure as soon as possible. It is based on the progress and success of research over the past four decades in uncovering the most promising pathways to a cure.”
