March was an inspiring month for the Dancing for Diabetes team. A group of DFD team members had a unique opportunity to tour the Diabetes Research Institute in Miami, Florida on March 1st. At the DRI, their mission is clear – to cure diabetes now. During the visit the team met with scientists and researchers who are leading game-changing efforts in finding a cure for Diabetes. The team toured the state-of-the-art research facilities and laboratories where the DRI team works tirelessly.
“We all left DRI feeling connected and inspired to the work being done there and energized to keep working hard to support DRI finding our cure! To complete our trip, the team participated in the DRI’s PEP Walk & Family Fun Day on March 2.” says Shana Windish – DFD Board Member.
