Pittsburgh Area Resources for Families
Learning to live with diabetes doesn't happen overnight – and you don't have to do it alone. That's why the American Diabetes Association is here for your family when you need us most – every day.
In the Pittsburgh area, we offer a number of social and support programs for families, including:
Kids, teens, and tweens only - This is your place to explore more about diabetes, discover new things about yourself, and connect with new friends. Planet D offers the chance for newly diagnosed teens/families to interact with others living with diabetes, educate themselves, and prepare for treatment.
You can find out about all of the fun social events and fundraisers in the Pittsburgh Area on our Community Calendar. We hold many events a year, including Tour de Cure, Step Out Walk, Father of the Year, Expo, and MORE! Great opportunity to come visit us, learn more, network with others and show your support!
Do you need some guidance now that your child with diabetes is in school? The American Diabetes Association's "Safe at School" program can help educate and train both you, your child and the school staff to ensure that children with diabetes are cared for and Safe at School.
Each year we host a camp for children with diabetes ages 8-16 at the beautiful YMCA Camp Soles in Rockwood, PA.
The American Diabetes Association is here for your family when you need us most — every day. Family Link and the Parent to Parent Network offer the chance for newly diagnised families to interact with other families living with diabetes.
