Marla Oringer


Marla and her husband, Robert, had already been involved in the diabetes industry as developers and marketers of innovative products for more than seven years when their two children were diagnosed in 1997 with Type 1 diabetes– Cory at age 3, and Justin at age 9 months. After a career in retail buying, fashion and merchandising, Marla decided to focus her early efforts in diabetes towards the JDRF and the Montreal Children’s Hospital, where she helped establish the first pediatric insulin pump center in Quebec. She has been a past President, past Chairman of the Board, and Board Member of The Just For Kids Foundation for more than 20 years. Most recently, Marla has been providing advisory support to the team producing The Human Trial documentary.
