SAN DIEGO, October 29, 2015 – ProSciento, Inc., an early phase clinical research organization (CRO) focused on diabetes and obesity, looks forward to JDRF’s Walk to Cure Diabetes on Saturday, November 7 in Balboa Park. This year marks ProSciento’s 11th year walking and fundraising as a corporate team of employees and supporters and also its 11th year as a corporate sponsor.
Type 1 diabetes 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. With type 1 diabetes there are no days off, and there is no cure. That’s why JDRF holds more than 200 Walks across the country every year to raise money to support research efforts to find a cure.
“The event itself is truly inspirational when witnessing so many people and businesses united together for a cause as vitally important as finding a cure and better treatments for type 1 diabetes,” said Dr. Marcus Hompesch, ProSciento President and CEO. “ProSciento is proud to be teaming up with JDRF to support the type 1 diabetes community and its Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising event here in San Diego.”
