The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is preparing to host its sixth and final Ride to Cure Diabetes Event for 2013, which is scheduled to take place November 21-24, 2013, in Tucson, Arizona.

Carolyn M. Young Fiduciary Services: A Socially Responsible Business

Currently responsible for the administration of more than $70 million in client assets, Carolyn M. Young Fiduciary Services represents the interests of clients gained through court appointment or other circumstances. A socially concerned businesswoman, owner Carolyn M. Young frequently elects to provide continuing pro bono fiduciary services when some clients no longer have available resources. These services include helping clients obtain qualified public assistance. In addition to her professional generosity, she and her family are active in supporting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

In recent news, one area of research that the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is drawing focus to is the prevention of type 1 diabetes, which is growing worldwide at an unprecedented rate. While the causes of type 1 diabetes are both genetic and environmental, current research has not yet established the exact contributors to a disease whose rate is doubling every 20 years. Since many affected by this condition are children between the ages of one and five, the need to support research in prevention is urgent.
