The epidemic continues to grow and more and more in the United States are diagnosed with diabetes. There is an organization here that provides diabetic research and information about this terrible disease. The organization is the American Diabetes Association. They were founded in 1940 and conduct seminars in communities across the nation. Their mission is to help prevent and to help cure diabetes. They also try to help improve the lives of those affected by this disease.
The American Diabetes Association provides information about diabetes to the families of people living with the disease, health care works, doctors and the public through their seminars and press releases. They provide funding for research as they help scientists work for a cure to this disease.
The American Diabetes Association also answers questions or concerns from average people about diabetes. Their 1-800 telephone number is available to anyone who needs to get information from them. They accept donation and are on the Combined Federal Campaign as a designated charity.
The money they raise helps then fund research and other programs that support adults and children throughout the country that suffers from diabetes. Thousands of people take part every year in events and fund raisers to augment awareness of diabetes and to raise money to be used for research purposes. In fact, they are one of the few organizations that has a ‘whistleblower program’ in place to ensure that their money is being used for the purposes they claim.
You can visit their on-line store to purchase different items that will make managing your diabetes easier. They offer meal planners, self-care guides, cookbooks, and other information that people with diabetes should know about.
If you, someone in your family or a friend is diabetic, consider a membership in the American Diabetes Association. You will be giving them a gift that is directly related to their medical condition and one that will continually send them the latest information on new developments in the search for a cure.
They even have a web site where you can go and read about them, what they are doing, and to get more information about the disease and how you can manage your symptoms. The American Diabetes Association will continue its work to find a cure for diabetes and to help educate the public. They will not stop until a cure is found and the disease is eliminated. This will not be an easy task, but they are there to continue the fight for everyone who is afflicted with the disease.
