JDRF T1D


MVHS student Julianna Fiero joined a representative from the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation to teach Otisville students about T1D, type 1 diabetes.  T1D means that a person's body cannot create insulin.  Insulin is a hormone that helps turn food into energy.  There are many ways that people with T1D get insulin.  It's important to remember that people with T1D can do anything anyone else can do! Otisville students will spend the next few weeks raising money to donate to JDRF with the hope that a cure is within reach.
