Lilly and Disney: A Unique Collaboration

Lilly and Disney: A Unique Collaboration

The Lilly Diabetes and Disney collaboration combines Lilly’s long history and deep understanding of diabetes with the magic of Disney storytelling to provide inspiration, education, and practical advice to families with children who have type 1 diabetes. We know that families living with type 1 diabetes face unique challenges. That’s why we’ve created a range of useful resources and programs to help families prepare for, cope with, and overcome each step of the diabetes journey from diagnosis to continued successful management.
