EDUCATE  ADVOCATE  CURE

Founded in 2015 by Juliet de Baubigny, Nick Jonas, Sarah Lucas + Sam Talbot, Beyond Type 1 is leveraging the power of social media and technology, changing what it means to live with a chronic disease. By educating the global community about this autoimmune disease, as well as providing resources and support for those living with Type 1 diabetes, Beyond Type 1 bridges the gap from diagnosis to cure, empowering people to both live well today and to fund a better tomorrow.

Founders + Leadership supports operational expenses so that 100% of every dollar raised directly supports the most promising global efforts and programs working to educate, advocate and cure Type 1 diabetes.  Beyond Type 1 is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization, under charitable ID #47-3336640.
