Keynote Address, Nicole Johnson, PhD

Dr. Nicole Johnson, a longtime diabetes advocate and leader who brought national attention to type 1 diabetes when she shared her personal story and ultimately won the 1999 Miss America contest, has been hired as National Director of Mission, a newly created position at JDRF, the leading global organization funding T1D research.

Johnson has a doctorate in public health and has gained a reputation for her work on diabetes research focused on behavioral health, quality of life and family dynamics for those in the T1D community, all skills she will put to use in her new role at JDRF. She is very familiar with the organization, having served on the JDRF International Board of Directors and having volunteered for more than 24 years. Johnson has also been a member of the Florida Governor’s Diabetes Advisory Council, the National Institutes of Health’s Council of Public Representatives and the national board for the American Diabetes Association.

Johnson is the co-founder of the Diabetes Empowerment Foundation (as well as its subsidiary, Students With Diabetes) and is the founder of Diabetes Partners and Diabetes Moms. She also led statewide initiatives in Florida funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) related to pre-diabetes and infant mortality.
