New England

new-england 365x285

People in New England are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as over 1.4 million residents have diabetes, and many others may have diabetes and not know it! It is estimated that one out of every three children born after 2000 in the United States will be directly affected by diabetes.

That is why the American Diabetes Association's New England office is so committed to educating the public about how to stop diabetes and support those living with the disease.

We are here to help!

The New England office serves Massachusetts, Maine, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont and Connecticut.

Program Info

Camp Carefree

Camp Carefree is a lifeline for children with diabetes to develop the critical skills needed to thrive while managing this disease. Attending summer camp helps children develop social skills, self-respect and life-long friendships. We give campers the opportunity to meet other campers just like themselves while fostering independence, building self-confidence and gaining an awareness of a healthy lifestyle through education, nutrition, exercise, emotional well-being and glucose control.

Become a Diabetes Advocate!

Life isn't fair for people with diabetes. First, there is the simple fact of coping with a chronic illness.  Second, there are the barriers that prevent people with diabetes from enjoying the same opportunities at the rest of the population. Our Advocacy efforts work to bring down the barriers and fund critical diabetes research.  Take action and become a Diabetes Advocate today!
