The American Diabetes Association (ADA) is leading the fight against the deadly consequences of diabetes and fighting for those affected by diabetes. Founded in 1940, ADA conducts programs in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, reaching hundreds of communities.
The mission of the Association is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. To fulfill this mission, ADA funds research, publishes scientific findings, provides information and other services to people with diabetes, their families, health care professionals and the public. The Association is also actively involved in advocating for scientific research as well as for the rights of all people, adults and children, with diabetes.
Each year, thousands of people participate in ADA community programs and activities to increase awareness of diabetes and raise needed funds. Community programs and special events, in particular, represent a large segment of our overall plan and are, in many cases, responsible for introducing the ADA to new communities in Southern California and in reinforcing our commitment to all people, adults and children, affected by diabetes. In addition to community support, they solicit support from pharmaceutical companies, foundations, the corporate community, retailers and others to help raise the critical funds needed to make a difference in the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
