National Strategic Partners
The American Diabetes Association salutes our National Strategic Partners and the important ways in which these companies have joined us to fight for the millions of people who are affected by diabetes.
We thank our National Strategic Partners for their valuable support; and we encourage other companies to join our fight against diabetes because we are all connected for life.
VSP® Vision Care, a VSP Global® company which serves nearly 90 million members as the largest and only national not-for-profit vision benefits provider, is a Visionary Partner of the American Diabetes Association® Eye Health 2020 Initiative and a National Strategic Partner of the American Diabetes Association. Together with the ADA, VSP launched this new initiative with the goal of reducing the risk of diabetes-related eye disease through increased awareness, screening, prevention and early intervention. With a network of over 40,000 doctors worldwide, VSP is committed to raising awareness of the crucial role an optometrist plays as an accessible part of a person’s healthcare team. As part of this multi-year collaboration with the ADA, VSP will help raise awareness of the critical role eye exams can play in early detection and prevention of diabetes-related eye disease.
CVS Pharmacy (CVS), a leading retail pharmacy with more than 9,600 locations nationwide, is a National Strategic Partner of the American Diabetes Association® and a proud sponsor of American Diabetes Month®. CVS is also a supporter of ADA awareness and wellness-based initiatives throughout the year.
CVS and the ADA are coordinating efforts to work toward common goals of preventing diabetes and improving the lives of people impacted by the disease. Together, CVS and the ADA will raise awareness by encouraging people to learn their risk for type 2 diabetes through the Minute Clinic and online ADA Risk Test screenings. As “Partners in Good Health,” CVS and ADA will enhance consumer solutions for living well with diabetes by educating people about the health risks associated with the disease, providing access to support tools and resources, reinforcing the important role health and nutrition play in diabetes management, and supporting healthcare professionals.
