We are excited to share with you that a story on the artificial pancreas aired on May 2nd on the national daytime talk show The Doctors. The segment featured JDRF Children’s Congress 2011 Chair and Government Relations Committee member Stefany Shaheen and her daughter Elle. Elle, 12, has type 1 diabetes and recently participated in a JDRF-funded artificial pancreas trial at Boston University and Massachusetts General Hospital led by researcher Dr. Ed Damiano.

Watch the two videos below to see the story featured on the show.

This is the second time that JDRF was featured on the national show. In 2010, Dr. Aaron Kowalski, assistant vice president of treatment therapies, did a live interview with the hosts to discuss JDRF’s Artificial Pancreas Project.
