THROUGH PREVENTION, DIAGNOSIS AND MANAGEMENT, WE'RE WORKING TO MAKE DIABETES CARE EASIER THAN EVER.
More than 463 million people around the world are living with diabetes. Many have no idea and remain undiagnosed. Diabetes is one of society's most prevalent — and expensive — chronic conditions.
Our goal is simple: We want fewer people adversely impacted by diabetes. We're committed to prevention, diagnosis and management. We're working to make managing the condition as simple, easy and effective as possible.
It starts with education. Forward-thinking programs such as Future Well Kids help build healthy habits at an early age. That's why it has our support. Smarter management, wearable tech and nutrition all can play significant roles in easing this burden. We're empowering people and their doctors to make better, faster and more informed decisions in ways that can fit easily into their lives.
But it doesn't stop there. We're also exploring ideas of how to better get those technologies to the people who need them the most, wherever in the world they may live.
"It's important that people with diabetes in the U.S. have access to the latest innovations to effectively manage their condition and help them thrive. It is time to tear down the systemic barriers that separate us based on zip code, income level, education, color and gender, and it's time that we demand health equity now."
