She was diagnosed with T1D in 1970 at age 33 and became the JDRF International Chairman in 1984. Over the past 30 years, Moore has educated about and increased awareness of T1D around the world, testified in front of Congress, and led public service campaigns that helped raise billions of dollars for research to remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until we finally achieve a world without T1D.

Because of Moore’s commitment, millions of children and adults living with T1D will have a better future.
