The Diabetes Action Research and Education Foundation, Inc. Overview
Programs: Diabetes Action has provided grants to over 230 separate research studies at universities and medical institutions across the United States. In addition to funding basic research to cure diabetes with gene therapies and beta cell transplantation, Diabetes Action funds research that examines how nutritional and complementary therapies may prevent and treat diabetes. Diabetes Action emphasizes prevention, with initiatives such as school-based health education programs on American Indian Reservations and free diabetes management booklets. Diabetes Action hosts the annual Diabetes University, a free educational program that highlights complementary, alternative, and nutritional research and treatments for diabetes. The Diabetes Action website offers information about diabetes as well as access to a Diabetes Educator for individual consultation in English or Spanish. Diabetes Action provides scholarships for children to attend special diabetes camps. Since 1990, Diabetes Action has consistently supported programs for American Indians who suffer the highest rate of type 2 diabetes in the world. Diabetes Action has been the only national diabetes organization to help build and equip the only three 100% American Indian owned and operated dialysis clinics in the U.S. Diabetes Action's International Program sends medical supplies to countries where resources are extremely limited.
