nickjonas In 2015, I co-founded @beyondtype1 specifically to tackle big problems in diabetes, and to change what it means to live with the disease. Today, Beyond Type 1 is launching GetInsulin.org -- a free resource for anyone in the US who needs insulin to find, understand, and access the options and programs that currently exist. GetInsulin.org offers people custom solutions based on their individual circumstances. It’s a tool for those who need help now.
We’ve built GetInsulin.org with many partners, including nationally renowned organizations such as the NAACP and Feeding America, along with leading diabetes organizations such as the American Diabetes Association and JDRF. Together, we must get the word out: rationing insulin is never safe. Anyone in the US who struggles to access insulin can now visit GetInsulin.org.
GetInsulin.org is an important tool, but the current system that allows people to slip through the cracks must also change. I’m proud of Beyond Type 1, our advocacy team, and @thomscher for working so hard and with partners at all levels on insulin affordability. Ultimately, insulin access shouldn’t be a political issue, but rather a human rights issue
nickjonas Cheers to the (much needed) freakin weekend. Just me and @pandathepunk hanging out. I’ll be drinking the @villaone repo on the rocks with a splash of club soda and an orange wedge. How are you drinking yours? 🥃🙌�
