  • Mission:
  • The mission of the American Diabetes Association is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.

  • Overview:
  • The American Diabetes Association (ADA) is the nation’s leading nonprofit health organization providing diabetes research, information and advocacy for all types of diabetes: type 1, type 2, gestational and pre-diabetes. In addition to helping those living with diabetes, ADA assists those who care for people with diabetes: parents, families, friends, and employers by providing them with information, support programs, educational programs, and the protection of their rights through advocacy efforts.

    Along with local ADA staff, nearly 300 volunteers help to deliver these programs and events to over 40,000 people in the KC metropolitan area in 2013. When people are diagnosed with diabetes, many experience shock, anger and denial. Diabetes is a life changing diagnoses that affects the individual and whole family. Education and support are the best tools for preparing people for the journey ahead. The Kansas City ADA is always available to provide access to the most up-to-date information regarding diabetes management.

  • History:
  • Founded in 1940, as a medical association for physicians, research scientists, and health care professionals it rapidly expanded to include public education via its magazine Diabetes Forecast and hosted its first camps for children with type 1 diabetes in 1948. In 2009, ADA launched a movement to Stop Diabetes®. The movement is designed to inspire and mobilize millions to take up the fight against this deadly disease. Currently the American Diabetes Association conducts diabetes education programs in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, reaching more than 800 communities. Locally, the American Diabetes Association of Kansas City serves the entire Kansas City area and surrounding communities.
