Diabetes Foundation Inc.
The Diabetes Foundation, Inc. is dedicated to improving the care and qualtiy of life for people living day-to-day with diabetes. Our current programming falls into three catagories: 1) Medical Assistance - providing short term medications and diabetes supplies to low income, un-insured or under insured diabetics until a more permanent program can be put into place. 2)Public Education - Because self-management is so critical to successfully living with diabetes, knowledge about the disease as well as problem solving and coping skills is an absolute necessity. The DFI offers free seminars taught by health care professionals whou present up-to-date information about diet, nutrition, exercise, complication, prevention and other topics essential to living a healthier life with diabetes. 3) Camp Sponsorships - The DFI provides the means for children, who might otherwise not be able to afford it, to attend a co-en diabetes camp. This affords the opportunity for children to live and play among peers who share their disease and enjoy and active and safe camping experience regardless of their medical conditon.
