Finding a Cure for Diabetes

Each gift to the UMass Diabetes Center of Excellence brings us closer to our goal of finding a cure for diabetes and improving the health and well-being of our patients.  If you wish to volunteer, participate in a clinical trial, thank your clinical team or to honor a loved one, your contribution will support:

  • Continued advances in type 1 and type 2 diabetes research
  • Continued improvement to inpatient and outpatient clinical care for people living with diabetes
  • Continued diabetes education with certified educators, nurses, and nutritionists

Grateful Patient Program

People who receive exceptional care often ask us how they can thank their diabetes care team. The Grateful Patient Program offers an opportunity to honor staff, a specific area of care, or a clinical program. It provides patients and/or families an opportunity to express a "thank you" for the special treatment and care received from our incredible staff and physicians.
