The 7th annual Rockin' Docs for Diabetes Cure benefit concert/fundraising event, will be held at 7:30pm on Saturday, April 1, 2017, at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, PA, and is open to fans of all ages. XPN Afternoon Show host Dan Reed will emcee the show. Rockin’ Docs concert will feature four exciting bands (Chicago 9 Tribute Band, Runnin' Late, RD Sting, and Rightback), each with doctors from major health care centers in the Tri-State area (Abington Hospital - Jefferson Health, Aria Health, Christiana Care Health System, Cooper University Hospital, Holy Redeemer Hospital, Princeton HealthCare System, St. Peter's Healthcare System, Spinal Health & Rehab Center, and Wills Eye Hospital), who have pledged their time for this worthy cause.
Rockin’ Docs was conceived and created by Kenneth Einhorn M.D, Jeremy Jaffe M.D. (himself diagnosed with type 1 diabetes over 20 years ago), and Nancy Wolfson, all of whom are parents of children with type 1 diabetes.
We're the stop at nothing type
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
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.
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.
