Waylon Jennings was bigger than life. Now medical experts hope his name can help others live their lives.

The Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) has established the Waylon Jennings Research Fund to help fuel the fight against diabetes. In partnership with the BMI legend’s wife Jessi Colter and son Shooter Jennings, TGen will use the Waylon Jennings Research Fund to raise awareness and capital benefiting its research, which is focused on the genetic factors that cause or contribute to complications due to Type I and Type II diabetes.
