National Diabetes Awareness Month

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month, a time when communities across the country raise awareness about diabetes and the critical urgency to find a cure. The Diabetes Research Institute (DRI) leads the world in cure-focused diabetes research. As one of the largest and most comprehensive research centers dedicated to curing diabetes, the DRI is aggressively working to develop a biological cure for diabetes by restoring natural insulin production and normalizing blood sugar levels without imposing other risks.

Why Support Us

Diabetes affects millions of lives, including children and adults who face daily struggles to manage their condition. 37.3 million people have diabetes in the US, of which 8.5 million people are undiagnosed.

The Diabetes Research Institute Foundation was created for one reason – to cure diabetes – which is and will continue to be its singular focus until that goal is reached. Supported by private philanthropy, DRIF ensures the jumpstarting of new ideas and the continuation of innovative research projects that remain cure-focused and will ultimately benefit those with diabetes. That’s why we’re committed to advancing research that can change lives forever.

For the millions of individuals and families affected by diabetes, the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation is the best hope for a cure.
