Jeffrey Brewer

After many years as an active JDRF volunteer, Jeffrey Brewer became JDRF’s president and CEO in 2010. As a volunteer, he supported his local New York City Chapter as a member of its Board of Directors, and he completed two terms on the JDRF International Board of Directors, where he also served as a member of the Research Committee and was Chair of the volunteer oversight body for the Artificial Pancreas Project. Jeffrey’s involvement with JDRF grows out of personal experience as the father of a son diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D) at age seven. He is committed to doing all that he can to free his son—and the millions of people like him around the world—from the daily burden of T1D.
