Sugar Medical Partners with JDRF’s T1D Care Kits Program

CHESTERFIELD, VA  June 7, 2018 - Sugar Medical, LLC, leader in the modern diabetic accessory market, announced its supporting partnership with JDRF, the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research, in suppling cases for their T1D Care Kits. JDRF’s T1D Care Kits feature tools and information to educate, support and inspire adults with T1D who are within their first year of diagnosis. Sugar Medical is donating 5,000 cases in their commitment to continuing education and support within the diabetes community.

“Life with type 1 diabetes can be challenging, and we strive to make life a little easier by creating accessories that don’t look or feel like medical cases,” said Carolyn Jäger, President and Founder of Sugar Medical. “Our team is excited to create a stylish, unique case just for the JDRF and to help those newly diagnosed adjust to life with diabetes. By designing stylish accessories, we hope that we encourage those with diabetes to carry their supplies with them more frequently, and in turn, encourage better overall health.”

 “The support of companies like Sugar Medical allow JDRF to continue to be unwavering in its support of the type 1 diabetes community with initiatives like the T1D Care Kit,” explains Marcela Arroyave, JDRF National Outreach Manager. “Until type 1 is type none, JDRF is dedicated to not only funding leading research projects, but also providing a support system, which is caring and informative for individuals with T1D and their families.”
