According to a press release that arrived in my doggy basket recently, everyone’s second favourite diabetes charity the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation has launched a competition to give sixty adults and children with type 1 diabetes the chance to have their say about the issues and challenges they face to MP’s and government officials at Westminster.
On April 25 2012, JDRF will be hosting a flagship lobbying event, Type 1 Parliament, at the Houses of Parliament, in an effort to secure Government funding into type 1 medical research and to push type 1 up the political agenda. To be part of the day, we are asking people to enter a competition to show us how they‘re dedicated to raising awareness of type 1 with their MP and in the media.
