Every two years, Breakthrough T1D International Chairman Mary Tyler Moore and over a hundred children with type 1 diabetes gather in Washington, D. C. to meet face‐to‐face with some of the top decision‐makers in the U.S. government.  The children, ages 4 to 17, represent all 50 states and the District of Columbia.  As participants
in Breakthrough T1D’s Children’s Congress, they have a unique and empowering opportunity to help Members of Congress understand what life with type 1 diabetes is like and why research to find the cure for diabetes and its complications is so critical.

The 2013 Children’s Congress will take place July 8 ‐ 10, 2013, in Washington, D.C. Applications will be taken through November 1, 2012. For more information, and to apply online, visit
