Founded in 1940, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) is the nation’s leading voluntary health organization whose mission is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. The ADA drives discovery by funding research to treat, manage and prevent all types of diabetes, as well as to search for cures; raises voice to the urgency of the diabetes epidemic; and works to safeguard policies and programs that protect people with diabetes. In addition, the ADA supports people living with diabetes, those at risk of developing diabetes, and the health care professionals who serve them through information and programs that can improve health outcomes and quality of life.

The American Diabetes Association has three strategic areas of focus:

  1. Drive Discovery — Through research, partnerships and innovation on a global scale, ADA will drive discoveries to prevent, manage and ultimately cure diabetes.
  2. Raise Voice — ADA will intensify the urgency around the diabetes epidemic and mobilize bold action through advocacy and engagement.
  3. Support People — ADA will provide new, effective resources for individuals and populations living with and at risk of developing diabetes, and for the health care professionals serving them, and offer those resources when, where and how they are needed.
