Camps: The Association continues to be the largest provider of Diabetes Camps as well as weekend retreats and one-day events that benefit more than 6,500 children of all ages each year. $500,000 in "camperships" was awarded to children to attend summer diabetes camps.

Advocacy: Our Advocacy team helps thousands facing discrimination and protects the rights of children with diabetes to have the care they need at school. Thanks to the efforts of our advocates, the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments help protect all those with diabetes fighting for fairness in the workplace.
