Defeat Diabetes Foundation Mission
The Mission of Defeat Diabetes Foundation is the prevention, early identification and self-management of the global epidemic, diabetes. We work with individuals and organizations worldwide through our awareness, education and assistance programs.
Our vision is to approach diabetes from a self-care and peer empowerment approach. Once you have a diagnosis of diabetes it is with you 24/7 – 365 days a year. We show through the actions of Executive Director, Andrew P. Mandell – Mr. Diabetes® (and other diabetic staff members), that diabetics are neither helpless nor hopeless and can lead productive lives.
