Founders Award Recipient
Dr. Jill Brodsky, Pediatric Endocrinologist, CareMount Medical and Vassar Brothers Medical Center
Since her relocation to the Hudson Valley in 2011, Dr. Brodsky has been transforming the quality of care offered in our region for children with Type 1 Diabetes. Through the establishment of her practice at The Mount Kisco Medical Group and in collaboration with Vassar Brothers Medical Center, she has worked tirelessly to bring the resources typical of a tertiary care children’s hospital to our community. Her passion for improving the lives of children with T1D stretches beyond her professional duties by volunteering 1 week of service for the past 6 years as Camp Physician for Setebaid Services, a camp for children with T1D. Dr. Brodsky has been a longtime partner with the JDRF; serving on the Hudson Valley Board of Directors, providing educational lectures, and performing JDRF sponsored research as the Regional Principal Investigator for TrialNet.

We're the stop at nothing type
JDRF exists for the millions of children, adults, and families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome this disease strengthens ours to end it by funding life-changing T1D research.
T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
Your participation in JDRF events ensures that JDRF can continue funding critical T1D research. With your support, this research will continue to bring us closer to a world without T1D.
