Mall of America - Bloomington
Benefiting relatives of individuals with Type 1 Diabetes 

The McNeely Pediatric Diabetes Center is part of an international research network called Type 1 Diabetes TrialNet. We are currently screening relatives of individuals with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) to see if they are at risk for developing the disease. The TrialNet research study offers a blood test that can identify increased risk for T1D up to 10 years before symptoms appear.

TrialNet offers screening to anyone:

  • Age 1-45 with a parent, brother, sister, or child with T1D
  • Age 1-20 with a niece, nephew, aunt, uncle, grandparent, half-brother/sister, or cousin with T1D

On Saturday, Feb 22 from 7:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., Children’s will be hosting a screening event at the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. The event will take place in Sears Court at the Mall of America. There is no fee to participate.
