cochairsAll profits generated will go to JDRF to further their mission to find a cure for type I diabetes and its complications. (Rockin’ Docs raised $70,000 last year to bring our 7 year total to over $300,000, with net proceeds going to JDRF). With support from JDRF, much progress has been achieved in recent years (including steps towards realization of an artificial pancreas and encapsulation of transferred islet cells), but there is still much more to accomplish on the road to finding a cure. Rockin’ Docs was conceived and created by Kenneth Einhorn M.D, Jeremy Jaffe M.D. (himself diagnosed with type 1 diabetes over 20 years ago), and Nancy Wolfson, all of whom are parents of children with type 1 diabetes.
