Programs

The American Diabetes Association's Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware office serve the community with a variety of programs, workshops and awareness campaigns for people living with diabetes, their friends and family. For information about these programs, please contact our office at 610-828-5003 or Bala_Office@diabetes.org.

Advocacy

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 as the rest of the population. Our Advocacy efforts work to bring down the barriers and fund research to Stop Diabetes®.

Youth

There are over 6,000 kids with diabetes in the Philadelphia region alone. Many of them are the only person with diabetes in their schools and families. Programs like our Camp Freedom and our Youth Leadership program provide kids with diabetes a place to interact with other kids with diabetes, learn leadership skills, and feel more confident and normal while living with the disease.

For more information about our youth and family initiatives, please contact Michelle Foster at 610-828-5003 ext. 4643 or mfoster@diabetes.org.
