Jacksonville is the largest city proper in Florida and largest city, by area, in the contiguous United States. It is the county seat of Duval County, with which the city government consolidated in 1968. Consolidation gave Jacksonville its great size and placed most of its metropolitan population within the city limits; with a population of 827,908, it is the most populous city in Florida, and the eleventh most populous in the United States. Jacksonville is the principal city in the Greater Jacksonville Metropolitan Area, with a population of 1,345,596 in 2010. Simply put, Jacksonville is an authentic Florida city. It’s economy is diversified and not wholly based in tourism. Harbor improvements since the late 19th century have made Jacksonville a major military and civilian deep-water port. Its river line location facilitates two U.S. Navy bases and the Port of Jacksonville, Florida’s third largest seaport. Significant factors in the local economy include services such as banking, insurance, healthcare and logistics. As with much of Florida, tourism is also important to the Jacksonville area, particularly in regards to historical, cultural and environmental assets. Once holding the distinctions of Insurance Capital of the South and Winter Film Capital of the World, not to mention currently housing a formidable financial industry, this underrated cosmopolitan city is a composite of northern aesthetics and southern charm. In combination with rich architectural diversity, influential African-American ancestry, and substantial musical contributions, Jacksonville has garnered international appeal for its relatively small piece of the world. Jacksonville was listed as a “High sufficiency” world city in the World Cities Study Group’s inventory. It ranks alongside cities such as Salt Lake City and Las Vegas. History
The area was originally inhabited by the Timucua people, and in 1564 was the site of the French colony of Fort Caroline, one of the earliest European settlements in what is now the continental United States. In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. The body breaks down the sugars and starches you eat into a simple sugar called glucose, which it uses for energy. Insulin is a hormone that the body needs to get glucose from the bloodstream into the cells of the body. With the help of insulin therapy and other treatments, even young children can learn to manage their condition and live long, healthy lives.
Type 1 diabetes signs and symptoms can come on quickly and may include:
Bed wetting in children who previously didn’t wet the bed during the night;
Extreme hunger;Unintended weight loss;
Irritability and other mood changes;
Fatigue and weakness;
In females, a vaginal yeast infection. JDRF is focused on bringing life-changing therapies from the lab to the community by impacting every stage of the drug delivery pipeline.

JDRF’s goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until we achieve a world without T1D. JDRF has led the search for a cure for T1D since our founding in 1970. In those days, people commonly called the disease “juvenile diabetes” because it was frequently diagnosed in, and strongly associated with, young children. Our organization began as the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. Later, to emphasize exactly how we planned to end the disease, we added a word and became the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.Today, we know an equal number of children and adults are diagnosed every day—approximately 110 people per day.
