How Your Dollars Make a Difference


The Association funds diabetes research, mobilizes community outreach and education, and promotes laws and polices that best meet the needs of people living with diabetes.

Over the years, we've funded nearly 4,000 projects and invested almost $640 million in diabetes research.


Funding Research

Throughout our history, we have been the leader in funding and supporting the research the world needs to stop the impact of diabetes.



A key component in making a difference in the fight against diabetes is to help people understand their risk.



As the trusted voice in the community, we’re committed to providing the most relevant information, tools, resources and support to everyone affected.
