Diabetes Research Institute Foundation Ramping up Plans for National Expansion

Coming soon to a city near you!

National Expansion PageMIAMI, FL – April 13, 2021 – The Diabetes Research Institute Foundation (DRIF) is ramping up plans for a national expansion through our newly created regional model.

For all of us in the diabetes community and here at DRIF, we feel the urgent need to find a cure. We also know that diabetes affects people throughout the United States and the world. There is so much promising research happening at the Diabetes Research Institute (DRI) impacting the diabetes community, and we want the valuable discoveries to reach as many people as possible.

Here is a list of cities we plan to expand to:

o Atlanta, GA
o Chicago, IL
o Dallas, TX
o Los Angeles, CA
o Palm Beach, FL
o Philadelphia, PA
o Washington, DC metro area.

If you live in or near any of these key areas, or if you have friends or family whom you think would like to get involved in our work, we would love for you to join us.

We have many exciting things planned for each region, including our Meet a DRI Scientist events, during which the community will hear directly from one of our DRI scientists and have the opportunity to ask them questions about their research. If you're interested in attending Meet a DRI Scientist, please contact us for more details!

We will also be forming small regional networks for our DRIF supporters to connect with one another both virtually and in person. Our DRIF team will be meeting with constituents in our key regions in the coming months and would welcome the opportunity to meet with you!

We hope to bring the same enthusiasm of our incredible, dedicated DRIF community to develop strong ties throughout the entire United States. If you would like to be part of our expansion, or if you are interested in meeting with a DRIF team member who will be coming to your area, please send an email to Lindsay Voltz or call (646) 475-1575.

 

Keep up with our progress toward a cure & more
