CMA’s Sarah Trahern Honored By JDRF
Chief Executive Officer of the Country Music Association, Sarah Trahern, was honored this weekend by JDRF, the leading global organization harnessing the power of research, advocacy and community engagement to advance life-changing breakthroughs for type 1 diabetes. Trahern was honored by country superstar Trisha Yearwood, who presented her with the honor at the organization’s annual Promise Gala.
Trahern is a longtime supporter of JDRF, as she herself was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in June of 2019, just days before hosting the annual CMA Fest. During Saturday night’s gala, Trahern spoke about the strength of the type 1 community and celebrated technological innovation related to the disease.
JDRF Tennessee hosted three simultaneous Promise Gala events in Nashville, Knoxville and Memphis on Saturday night, raising more than $2.5 million to improve lives and find cures for type 1 diabetes.
