A wealth management advisor and vice president with Merrill Lynch, Thomas Zenovic has nearly 20 years of experience in financial planning. Outside of his professional life, Thomas Zenovic is involved with numerous charity organizations, including the Children’s Miracle Network, the Eagles Wings Foundation, and JDRF, formerly known as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
JDRF is dedicated to determining the cause of type 1 diabetes and finding a cure. In July of 2013, hundreds of children affiliated with JDRF met with members of Congress in Washington, DC, on the need for type 1 diabetes research funding. They called for the renewal of Congressional support for type 1 diabetes research through legislation such as the Special Diabetes Program (SDP). Supporting JDRF’s cause is a new study indicating that diabetes costs are expected to more than double by the year 2020. However, with continued funding for programs such as the SDP, the incidence and severity of type 1 diabetes could be reduced, saving taxpayers billions of dollars.
