Join us for Keynote Speaker Will Cross.
William H. Cross is anAmericanmountain climber. In May 2006 he summited Mount Everest. He has ascended the highest peaks on all seven continents and walked to both theNorthandSouth Poles. He has also led expeditions to 15 unmapped, unexplored mountains in Greenlandand in Patagonia,Mountains of the Moon, the Sahara Desert, and the Thar Desert of India.
Cross has lived with type 1 diabetesfor over 30 years. He manages his diabetes in the most extreme conditions, while facing challenges such as irregular meals; extreme temperatures; unusual sleeping patterns; physical exertion; high risks of frostbite and dehydration; and other less than ideal conditions in which to monitor glucose levels and administer insulin.
He also works as a motivational speaker and seeks to get out the message that if he can control his diabetes in the most unlikely conditions, no one should feel hindered by diabetes.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research and because of generous donor and partner support, we have been able to direct over $2 billion toward research. JDRF is an organization built on a grassroots model of people connecting in their local communities, collaborating regionally for efficiency and broader fundraising impact, and uniting on a national stage to pool resources, passion, and energy. JDRF collaborates with academic institutions, policymakers, and corporate and industry partners to develop and deliver a pipeline of innovative therapies to people living with T1D. Our vision is to create a world without T1D. For more information, please visit jdrf.org or follow us on Twitter: @JDRF.
