The JDCA: We Are The Voice Of The Donor For a Cure

The JDCA is a new 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organization focused solely on facilitating the delivery of a practical cure for type 1 by 2025. The JDCA is unique among type 1-related organizations because we provide independent and objective research and analysis on several major type 1 charitable research foundations/organizations. As an independent information provider, we conduct proprietary research and report our findings and conclusions without bias toward any charitable foundation or research approach. We operate free of conflicts of interest and receive no compensation from the organizations discussed in our reports. The JDCA takes a business-like approach in our assessment of the prospects for developing a practical cure for type 1. The strategies and operations of the charitable research foundations/organizations we follow will be studied, analyzed, and commented on within the context of the potential to develop a practical cure by 2025.

It's been a while since we posted here I guess - but wanted to let everyone know that soon (within the next few weeks) we will have a brand new website and a new video, so stay tuned for some big improvements and new initiatives by the JDCA ! :)

Hey ya'll,

Figured I'd post a link to a series of articles we wrote about ourselves to help you get to know Stoyan, Drew and I a little better.

There's several other "getting to know us" post on Stoyan's blog ( including our diagnosis stories) for anyone who would like to know a little bit more about us, or possibly share some more about themselves.

Hi everyone,

Do not be hesitant to ask us questions or comment on anything regarding the JDCA - we'd love to get to talk to you about the organization we are involved in!
