The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is the worldwide leader in financing type 1 diabetes (T1D) research initiatives and awareness campaigns. The organization maintains a number of diverse advocacy programs, including the #Coverage2Control initiative. Through #Coverage2Control, the JDRF network of supporters are provided a platform from which to engage some of the nation’s top employers on matters of diabetes health care coverage.

Specifically, the #Coverage2Control movement functions as a request for clear and affordable access to insulin, mobility in regards to choosing an insulin pump manufacturer, and expanded coverage of artificial pancreas systems.
