Former Gator and NBA player Corey Brewer supports his alma mater, The University of Florida, to support education and awareness programs for diabetes. Each year, Corey hosts his annual ‘Back2Back’ Instructional Basketball Camp in Gainesville, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the UF Diabetes Institute. He is also a member of the Institute’s Ambassadors Council, and established the Corey Brewer Foundation to help those who have been affected by the disease.
Certified Diabetes Educators (CDE) are involved in teaching people how to manage the disease. Supporting our educators provides an invaluable asset to those who need to learn the tools and skills necessary to control blood sugar and prevent long-term complications.
