Promise Meeting 2011

Scott Benner

I spent an hour this afternoon with a handful of wonderful people. We gathered in our Congressman's office to support the work that the JDRF does. I have to say that I believe these meetings are a significant tool in spreading support for type I diabetes amongst our lawmakers. I found our congressman to be engaged, interested and concerned but there was more to the meeting then just pleasantries, the congressman spoke about close relatives of his that have type I as well as his spouse being effected by other autoimmune disorders. He was very aware of studies, laws and pending bills that all have a great effect on your life and mine.

I left with a very positive feeling but most importantly I believe that he will tell the stories that we told him to others in Washington. 

I encourage you to sign up for a Promise meeting in your area, you'll be glad that you did!

I hope to have a photo from the event soon...
