Diabetes Advocates is a program of the Diabetes Hands Foundation, that connects Diabetes advocates, helps them work together, and pools their resources to help people with Diabetes everywhere. We envision a world where everyone who wishes to advocate for people with Diabetes can connect with other like-minded advocates and get the support they need to help people with Diabetes.

We want to thank everyone who applied this year. It was very difficult to make selections. We look forward to meeting the scholarship winners at the conferences and for another year of connecting and engaging diabetes leaders!

    I have recently found this organization below via facebook. They are supporting promising research on type 2 Diabetes. They are working with Researchers who are working at finding a treament for Type 2 Diabetes. I was surprised to learn from their website that this chronic disease is affecting almost 400 Million people around the World! http://www.type2diabetesresearch.org
