About the American Diabetes Association

The American Diabetes Association is the nation's premier voluntary health organization supporting diabetes research, information and advocacy. Founded in 1940, the Association has offices in every region of the country, providing services to hundreds of communities. The Association's commitment to research is reflected through its scientific meetings; education and provider recognition programs; and its Research Foundation and Nationwide Research Program, which fund breakthrough studies looking into the cure, prevention, and treatment of diabetes and its complications. The American Diabetes Association Research Foundation was created to raise support for diabetes research conducted within the Nationwide Research Program. One hundred percent of all Research Foundation contributions go directly to diabetes research. All non-research costs associated with the Research Program are paid for through the Association's general fund.
