Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Ambulatory & Primary Health Care, Health, Specifically Named Diseases, Specifically Named Diseases Research

Mission: The Diabetes Institutes Foundation began in 1988 as the supporting arm of the Strelitz Diabetes Institutes at Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, Virginia. The Institutes developed as a response to a vital need in southeastern Virginia for cutting-edge care for over 120,000 people who have diabetes. Two years later a research program was added to complete the Institutes as a comprehensive center for the cutting-edge treatment and management of diabetes.

The Institutes sees 22,000 patient visits every year with patients coming from around the world for help in the management of their diabetes and relief from complications - especially neuropathy.

Pioneering research towards a cure focuses on islet cell regeneration through the use of a gene (INGAP)discovered at the Institutes and believed to regenerate the insulin making capability of the damaged pancreas. This exciting research allows the body to regenerate its own cells and heal itself.

We Need Your Support For November 14, It's World Diabetes Day.
Dear World Diabetes Day Donor.
My name is Fred Flowers and I’m part of the People’s Diabetes Foundation team in Santa Monica California and in the country of Belize. We’re hosting our annual Virtual World Diabetes Day Telethon in the country of Belize Central America. This event helps raise funds and helps with our “Blood Glucose Monitor Program (BGMP).“ This program provides individuals with a glucometer and a month of free supplies to track their blood glucose numbers. The individuals also receive a free HBA1C test to see how they are living with their diabetes. Also included is a weekly follow-up by our team for education and support.
With your financial support, we can also provide the “Loaner Program.” This program loans a glucometer to individuals who have diabetes but do not have access to or own a glucometer so they may track their blood glucose levels.
When we initially started our campaign, we had a saying, “We all know of someone with diabetes.” Today we can say 1 in 10 Belizeans is touched in some way or another due to diabetes.
Help us to raise awareness about this disease experienced by many Belizeans. We’re proud to announce that this year’s event will occur on 11/14/2021 in Corozal. This year’s theme is “Access to Care,” which these programs have been proved to do. The programs give people who cannot get care, for many reasons, a way to get care.
This event wouldn’t be possible without the support of companies, such as yours, providing needed financial support and collaboration. We are looking forward to hearing from you and to answer any questions you may have. Thank you for your consideration! With your help, we’re one step closer to our goal.
