Event Details

What is a TypeOneNation Summit?
The TypeOneNation Summit is an all-day educational and networking opportunity. The Summit brings together T1D experts to share their knowledge on the latest treatments, breakthroughs in T1D research and the psycho-social aspects of living with T1D. At this year's TON Summit, you will hear from medical experts and meet with industry partners to hear about the most up-to-date technology and tools dedicated to helping people live better, healthier lives with type 1 diabetes. You will also have time to network with people just like you who are balancing life with T1D.
Who is the TypeOneNation Summit Keynote Speaker?
Francis J. Martin, Ph.D., is a member of JDRF's Mission Team. Dr. Martin's research focuses on the unique interface of the immune system and the pancreatic microenvironment as well as the development of biomarkers of beta cell stress and function.
Frank will be introduced by Carl Armato, President and CEO Novant Health.  Diagnosed as a toddler with type 1 diabetes, Carl thrived under his parents’ determined care and their conviction that T1D would not derail his future.  Carl now leads one of America’s most respected healthcare organizations, and serves in a myriad of professional and civic roles.  Carl chooses to live his best life because of – and not in spite of – his diabetes.
