About The diaTribe Foundation

One in seven adults in the United States has diabetes and that number is expected to rise to one in three adults by 2050, and to over 640 million adults worldwide by 2040. Because there is no single solution to address the type 2 diabetes epidemic, the single biggest public health problem of our time, and no single path to a cure for type 1 diabetes, the diaTribe Foundation uses multiple approaches to address type 2, type 1, and pre-diabetes and to change existing narratives about diabetes. 

A growing national nonprofit organization founded in 2013 by renowned diabetes advocate Kelly Close, we are creating a societal shift in which reducing the burdens of diabetes, or eliminating the disease entirely, becomes a priority for diverse stakeholders including clinicians, scientists, governments, nonprofits, businesses, and patients. 

We have been able to amplify our impact thanks to an exceptionally robust growth in funds raised every year since our founding – including during COVID-19. We are expanding our resource development department and welcome qualified and committed candidates.
