Finding a Cure

Each gift to the Diabetes Center of Excellence brings us closer to our goal of finding a cure for diabetes and improving the health and well-being of patients with diabetes. 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 basic and clinical 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

Patients who receive exceptional care often ask us what they can do to thank their caregiver. 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 a way to express a "thank you" for the special treatment and care received from our expert and caring staff and physicians.

You can make a gift to the UMass Diabetes Center of Excellence through our secure online web page (select "Diabetes" on the dropdown menu) or you can mail a check, payable to UMMF, to the Office of Advancement.
