The TrialNet team from WakeMed has been invited to screen at the Triangle Eastern JDRF Chapter TypeOneNation Summit. Join other individuals, families, and caregivers affected by type 1 diabetes at all stages for a day of education and connection. Talk to experts about research advancements and participate in discussions important to you.
We will be screening family members for type 1 diabetes risk through the Pathway to Prevention Study. Participating involves a simple blood test that could detect an increased risk up to ten years before symptoms appear. Those that test at increased risk may be eligible to participate in a prevention trial or ongoing monitoring. Screening is offered at no cost to relatives.
If your family is attending the conference, please look for us in the vendor area.
Not attending the conference? Call Sarah Sniff at 919-350-5882 to schedule an appointment at WakeMed Pediatric Endocrinology clinic, or call 877-343-2377 and we’ll send you a kit for screening at a lab close to your home.
