We are very pleased to welcome MMA fighter Anna Hyvärinen as the first brand ambassador for the Type 1 Diabetes Defense Foundation. Anna will be wearing T1DF’s logo on her jiu jitsu Gi and MMA fight gear in competitions coming up this summer and beyond.
The Type 1 Diabetes Defense Foundation is the only U.S. nonprofit dedicated to the rights of people with type 1 and insulin-dependent diabetes. T1DF and its president Julia Boss (individually) are currently plaintiffs in several drug pricing lawsuits we initiated in early 2017, including Boss v. CVS (insulin pricing), now consolidated into In re Insulin Pricing Litigation (Case 3:17-cv-00699-BRM-LHG).
As a small advocacy 501(c)(3) that’s spent the past year fighting hard in a David-and-Goliath struggle on insulin, glucagon, and test strip pricing—pitting us against some of the largest corporations and class action law firms in the United States—T1DF is especially proud to see our blue diabetes justice logo on the powerful forearms and shoulders of 5’4” flyweight/strawweight Anna Hyvärinen.Read More
