The Pathway to Prevention Study is screening relatives for type 1 diabetes related autoantibodies through a simple blood draw which help determine risk to develop type 1 diabetes and eligibility for a prevention trial or close monitoring.

Anyone between the ages of 1 and 45 with a parent, sibling, or child with type 1 diabetes or anyone between the ages of 1 and 20 with a cousin, niece/nephew, aunt/uncle, half-sibling or grandparent with type 1 diabetes may be eligible to participate at no cost.
