Be part of something greater. Help UF find a cure for diabetes.
According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), there are nearly 30 million Americans living with diabetes. More than 90 percent of all diagnosed cases are type 2 diabetes. These numbers only continue to grow. At the UF Diabetes Institute, finding a cure for diabetes is our top priority.
The UF Diabetes Institute is internationally recognized as a leader in efforts to predict, prevent, and reverse diabetes, and seeks to improve outcomes of all individuals with diabetes — type 1 and type 2 — and to continue to do research aimed at the prevention and cure of this disease. The 2014-15 U.S. News Best Children’s Hospital Rankings rated the UF Health Pediatric Diabetes and Endocrinology program highest in the state and 14th nationally. 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.
