Today, more than 25 million people in the US are living with diabetes, and the need for comprehensive support and treatment grows every day. Commitment to diabetes care takes many forms—from developing innovative products and devices to our commitment to ongoing research and development and providing educational support. Each one of these areas requires a unique understanding of the disease and the people it affects.
Lilly supports several innovative programs and initiatives for people living with diabetes, their caregivers, and others who are affected by the disease:
- F.A.C.E.: Fearless African-Americans Connected and Empowered—a grassroots movement to empower African Americans to help individuals, families, and neighborhoods overcome key barriers to success in living with diabetes.
- Lilly Camp Care Package—In addition to donating products, Lilly Diabetes provides diabetes camps across the nation with educational resources and experiences that are designed to inspire and help children learn how to manage their diabetes. To learn more about the Lilly Camp Care Package, please read our annual newsletter.
- Lilly Diabetes Journey Awards™—this program recognizes people in the US who have successfully managed their diabetes with insulin for 25, 50, or 75 years or more and encourages their ongoing success.
