Every 21 seconds, someone new is diagnosed.

Take action and join the fight against diabetes.

The numbers are staggering. 34 million Americans have diabetes and another 88 million have prediabetes—a number that only gets more dire when you consider its associated health care price tag of $327 billion. Today, diabetes causes more deaths than breast cancer and AIDS combined. Diabetes isn’t a disease—it’s an epidemic. And the time to take action is now.

We know that we can put an end to all this suffering. We know that we can find better treatments for those fighting diabetes. We know that we can find a cure. We just need more people like you to join the fight.

Work with us. Help us raise awareness. Donate to support research. Fundraise with your community. Together, we can do this—we can find a cure and make millions of people’s lives so much better. It’s a fight worth fighting. A fight worth winning.


The American Diabetes Association raises awareness and support in several ways. The Tour de Cure, the Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes, and other events have helped us make important headway against diabetes. Of course, there’s still much more to do.


Participate in one of our signature events or create one of your own. We need your support. Thank you for joining this fight.

Your kindness can be tax-deductible

企业给予我们和你都可以为我们做很多。当公司赚钱打击糖尿病时,他们发出强大的信息 - 他们与我们同在,他们理解痛苦,他们关心。企业捐赠是通过工资汇款贡献的免税和易于制作的税收。他们的社会影响是无法估量的。

If you’re interested in making a corporate donation, a dedicated ADA staff member is ready to help develop and execute a unique, co-branded workplace giving campaign complete with sample messaging, internal email templates, and a series of promotional posters to support your efforts.
