Supporting Diabetes Research

Every day, more than 422 million adults wake up to the challenges of living with diabetes. This, according to the World Health Organization, is quadruple the number of people who struggled with the disease in 1980.

You can help to slow the spread of this epidemic by supporting the UCI Diabetes Center –the only academic research center in Orange County where nationally recognized investigators explore novel therapies and devices designed to improve treatment for people living with the disease.

When you support the center, your local gift has the potential for global impact. UCI physician-scientists who aspire to defeat this disease share findings in publications, presentations and collaborations, helping others attack the problem from different perspectives. At the same time, this exchange of knowledge gives UCI physicians valuable insights that enhance the care they offer your friends and family.

Discovering new pathways to health

Bold research moves forward with support from visionaries like you—people who can imagine a day when no one suffers from diabetes. Every dollar you give to the UCI Health Diabetes Center stays in Orange County, enabling more game-changing clinical trials and investigations that aim transform diabetes management and, ultimately cure the disease.
