Our Mission: To prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
The money you raise for the Association funds critical diabetes research, information programs, and advocacy efforts that support the nearly 30 million children and adults in the U.S. with diabetes, and the 86 million with pre-diabetes.
Since its inception, the Association has invested more than $700 million in research and provided funding for more than 4,500 research projects.
The Association's programs and workshops for high-risk populations give individuals, families, schools and community’s critical guidance and culturally competent tools and resources to help those affected by diabetes take control.
