The Diabetes Center of Excellence Heroes Fund
Our heroes come in many shapes and sizes.
They are the children and adults with type 1 diabetes who refuse to allow it to get in the way of their dreams.
They are the people who have or are at risk for type 2 diabetes who change habits, become more active, make better nutritional choices and ultimately take control of the disease.
Help us honor these heroes by making a contribution to the UF Health Diabetes Center Heroes Fund. You can designate your contribution to the program you care most about or make a general contribution that will be used in the area of greatest need. No contribution is too small and your gift will allow our doctors, nurse educators, scientists and advocates to continue efforts to find a cure and to provide care, education , and hope for people with diabetes.
Contributions to the Heroes Fund will support the following areas:
- Type 1 diabetes research – Help move us closer to a cure by supporting the diabetes research program.
- Education and advocacy programs – Help support people with and at risk for type 1 and type 2 diabetes through support groups, educational and advocacy programs.
- UF Health Diabetes Center Summer Internship Program – Help us mentor tomorrow’s investigators and diabetes educators.
- Area of greatest need.
