A seven-year-old Pocatello girl is heading to the Nation’s capitol next week to lobby as a delegate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. KPVI reports that Sydney Lyon will get the chance to meet with President Barack Obama, as well as discuss plans for more research on diabetes – a disease which impacts the lives of nearly three million Americans.
