Thank You, JDRF!

A quick, post-trip vlog post that I recorded last night after getting home from the airport.

I know that I look half asleep already, and I’m probably even slurring my words a little bit… but I wanted to get a quick “thank you” out to the JDRF and everyone else I met these past few days.

More to come after I get caught up on my rest!

  1. It was so nice to meet you this weekend! I agree – Government Day was wonderful! And I have yet to catch up on my rest! Still totally exhausted! But I can’t wait to read what you write!

  2. Thank you for all that you’ve done in DC with the JDRF, and I was so inspired by the roundtable that I started my own diabetes blog and came out of being a DOC “lurker” to writing and signing up to be an advocate in my area with JDRF and tweeting (@alizachana). Thanks for inspiring me! 🙂 My blog is at .

  3. Great to have you along, Scott. You fit into our Hill team beautifully–I can’t say it any better than that!

    Increasing research funding to provide better therapies now to make the lives of people living with type 1 better and healthier and ultimately to find a cure for the disease is the goal of Government Relations at JDRF. I am so proud to work with so many great advocates who work so hard to make their voices heard. I’m very glad you had a chance to see the advocates who put their hearts and souls into these efforts and who are just a fraction of those who make a difference through advocacy in JDRF GR.

  4. We had such a great time having Scott has part of our Minnesota group. It made our meetings even more special. It is always great to have the perspective of someone who is living with type 1 on a daily basis, at the meetings with their legislators. Scott, you did an awesome job of hitting the ground running as a participant in the Minnesota meetings on the Hill.

  5. Scott,
    It was nice to hear what you had to say and to meet you in D.C. I think you are a diabetes advocate if you are working to bring attention to the fight for a cure and better lifestyle for type 1s and/or if you are helping people (young or old 🙂 ) living with type 1. So in my book – you’re an advocate and I hope we’ll see you helping the JDRF GR team in future efforts!

  6. awesome…between texas, wash, florida events…even though not personally attending any of them felt very connected to the DOC…recharged! inspiring!

  7. Awesome gratitude 🙂

    It was SUCH an amazing weekend and I wasn’t even there 🙂 SO VERY COOL! The round table was so awesome, fantastic, wonderful and inspiring. LOVED EVERY MINUTE!
