At the American Diabetes Association, we are dedicated to changing the future of diabetes by spearheading a national movement that invites people to help confront and fight diabetes. Our ultimate goal is to Stop Diabetes® — once and for all.
We cannot achieve this goal alone. Your dedication and passion are critical to strengthening our movement and realizing our mission: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
Your involvement as an American Diabetes Association volunteer— whether on a local or national level — will help us expand our community outreach and impact, inspire healthy living, intensify our advocacy efforts, raise critical dollars to fund our mission, and uphold our reputation as the moving force and trusted leader in the diabetes community.

“I attended Diabetes Camp. I was a Camp Counselor. After I got my nursing degree, I was asked to return to camp as a camp nurse. A couple of years later I became the Nursing Director for camp. Ten years later, I still love every minute of this. Camp was a huge help to me and I appreciate being able to give this experience to others. As long as there is diabetes, I hope there is an American Diabetes Association Diabetes Camp. You will love this experience!”
