Be part of something greater. Help UF find a cure for diabetes.

Diabetes touches the lives of nearly everyone. With the near epidemic proportions of Type 2 diabetes in the United States and other developed nations, most people either have it, are related to someone that has it or at least know someone that has it.

At the UF Diabetes Institute, we seek to improve the lives of all individuals afflicted with diabetes — type 1 and type 2 — and to continue to pioneer research aimed at the prevention and cure of this disease.

The UF Diabetes Institute is internationally recognized as a leader in efforts to predict, prevent, and reverse diabetes. In fact, the UF Health Pediatric Diabetes and Endocrinology program was recently rated the best in the state, and the 14th best in the nation, by U.S. News and World Report. In addition, our Pediatric Diabetes Education program was the first pediatric-specific program in Florida to receive the coveted Education Program Recognition certification from the American Diabetes Association.

Investments in diabetes education, patient care, and research are essential to our work. Your gift, regardless of size, can make the critical difference in funding new scientific endeavors. Private funding provides the resources needed to to achieve the breakthroughs so vital to reducing the incidence of diabetes and to one day finding a cure.
