Founded in 1940, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) works to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. RESEARCH The ADA has been funding innovative research to combat diabetes since 1955. We fund more than $42 million a year in research at more than 160 research institutions throughout the country. INFORMATION The ADA provides the public and health care professionals with the most up-to-date information to help take a stand against diabetes. We reach out through our National Call Center (1-800-DIABETES) and our Web site (www.diabetes.org) as well as monthly consumer and professional books and periodicals. ADA also has a presence in communities through its Expos in 17 markets, its 57 sessions of camp each summer for kids with diabetes, and outreach to high-risk populations through its Latino, African American and Native American initiatives.
