Eastern Pennsylvania & Delaware

Love Park Statue

Pennsylvanians and Delawareans are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as over 1.5 million residents suffer from the disease, 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 Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia office serves Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware.

Program Info

The American Diabetes Association's Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware office serves the community with a variety of programs, workshops and awareness campaigns for people living with diabetes, their friends and family. 

Camp Freedom

Camp Freedom 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 kids the opportunity to meet other kids just like them 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!
