KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Annie Schultz

Annie was born and raised in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge in White Salmon, WA. She graduated from Oregon State University in 2004 with a Degree in Exercise Science--Sports Medicine, but chose a sports business route. That took her to Tacoma, WA where she was the Senior Director of Marketing for the Tacoma Rainiers, Triple-A Affiliate of the Seattle Mariners. While working for the Rainiers, Annie connected with the local JDRF Branch and volunteered on the South Sound Board of Directors. While volunteering she was hired by JDRF as a Regional Marketing Manager. She remained with JDRF for three years before taking a new and exciting role in the T1D research world with Diabetes TrialNet. TrialNet is a worldwide network of researchers and institutions focused on preventing type 1 diabetes. Annie is the Project Manager for Outreach & Recruitment for the Diabetes TrialNet network.

Annie came to the T1D research worlds as a person who is directly impacted by T1D. Her father was diagnosed in 1964 at age 19, Annie herself was diagnosed at age 21. She and her family members have participated in numerous clinical research trials of type 1 diabetes. Specifically, Annie has participated in trials for the artificial pancreas at the Benaroya Research Institute. She is also a member of the JDRF Speakers Bureau, a Board Member for ConnecT1D an organization that puts on a type 1 diabetes family camp and a volunteer for JDRF Seattle. She was recently awarded the Auto-immune Alliance-A3 Focus Award for her spirit, dedication and community involvement while living with an autoimmune disease. She admits that while her story can be difficult to share, it demonstrates very clearly the tremendous advancements that are a direct result of JDRF funded research.
