A great party AND important fundraiser

encourage you to learn more about our mission and our programs.
As a nonprofit, we have many ways of fundraising: sponsorships, a
live auction, a silent auction, and “Fund-A-Cure,” a live action
donation from the floor activity in support of our programs and
areas of focus, such as:
Diabetes and Pregnancy – Our research has established the gold
standard for the treatment of pregnant women with diabetes
worldwide. Our protocols focus on maintaining near-normal blood
sugar control in women throughout pregnancy, leading to
uncomplicated termndeliveries of healthy, normal-weight babies.
Through our programs, women with type 1 diabetes can fulfill their
dreams of having a family. Our research with women with type 2
and gestational diabetes seeks to end the cycle of diabetes by
reducing the risk to the child of becoming obese
and developing type 2 diabetes.
Artificial Pancreas Project – A multi-study program of research to
advance technology to automate insulin delivery throughout the day
and night with minimal human interaction. The goal of Artificial
Pancreasmresearch is to use information about current levels of
blood sugar in the context their rate and direction of change to
determine the amount and timing of insulin needed, and
automatically and wirelessly send instructions to an insulin pump.
This project includes research on glucose sensors, new insulins,
and new mechanisms of insulin delivery.
Diabetes Education and Outreach for the Underserved – Our
multi-faceted programs target low-income, low-literacy,
largely-monolingual Spanish-speaking clients with or at risk for type
2 diabetes. We emphasize dietary information for optimal blood sugar
control, understanding common medications, common signs and
symptoms, important health exams, and low/no-cost methods to deal
with stress in everyday life. Our programs have resulted in dramatic
improvements in diabetes control in this challenging and vulnerable
Youth Programs Designed to Prevent Diabetes – We provide an
intensive multifaceted program that educates and inspires high school
students to adopt and maintain good eating habits and engage in
regular exercise. Our program increases diabetes awareness and
knowledge about what is a healthy weight, how media distorts
healthy bodymimage, and how they can become pro-active in
improving their health. We count on people like YOU to support
our research and community outreach. Your gift today is 100%
