Mission Statement

The American Diabetes Association is leading the fight against the deadly consequences of diabetes and fighting for those affected by diabetes. To accomplish its mission , the Association funds research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes and its complications; delivers services to communities across the United States; provides objective and credible information through multiple media and channels; and is actively involved in advocacy and awareness efforts to educate people about the disease and to give voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes.   The mission of the American Diabetes Association (the Association) is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin.  Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life.  The cause of diabetes continues to elude the medical community, although research has shown that both genetics and environmental factors such as obesity and lack of exercise appear to play roles.

Leadership Statement:

Message from the Chair of the Board and the Chief Executive Officer:  “Momentum Builds”is the perfect theme to describe the first year for implementation of the American Diabetes Association’s 2012–2015 Strategic Plan and our many accomplishments in 2012. Our ambitious strategic plan serves as the blueprint to guide our work and keep us focused on our goals over the next four years. In this first year, there was no shortage of successes to get this plan off to a favorable start./The American Diabetes Association continues its commitment to funding and supporting diabetes research. In fact, we stepped up our efforts in 2012 with the launch of the Pathway to Stop Diabetes campaign. This transformational program will inspire a new generation of game-changing scientists to apply their innovative thinking to our vision: Life free of diabetes and all its burdens./ We were also pleased to be able to enhance our work in the areas of community outreach and education. More than 175,000 new participants enrolled in our Living With Type 2 Diabetes program—a support system for patients navigating their first year with the disease. Our Healthy living magazine, Diabetes Forecast also maintained its momentum with a new design and the addition of apps for Android, Apple and the Kindle Fire./ With the numbers of those affected by this disease continuing to grow, primary prevention of type 2 diabetes remained a focal point for our work in 2012. We launched our healthy worksite initiative, Stop Diabetes @ Work, giving employers and employees access to lifestyle advice, recipes, online tools and local resources to create a healthier work environment. / Some of our greatest momentum for the year came from our ever-growing presence in social media. This allowed us another effective venue for disseminating critical messages and content about Association tools and resources to help combat this escalating crisis/Stop Diabetes remains our rallying cry.

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Yes
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Yes
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Yes
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Yes
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Yes

Program Long-Term Success:

RESEARCH   The primary goals of the Association's Research Program are: 1. Support the highest quality science across the broad spectrum of diabetes research 2. Support investigators early in their careers to encourage them to dedicate their efforts to diabetes research, and 3. Support innovative research with a high potential to have a significant impact for patients with diabetes.       Types of Research Awards       The American Diabetes Association Research Program supports basic and clinical/translational diabetes research aimed at preventing, treating and curing the disease. The diabetes research projects supported by the program cover the spectrum from islet cell biology and transplantation techniques, to education and behavioral issues. Our core program offers investigator-initiated funding for basic science and clinical/translational research awards. In support of the drive and potential of young and promising researchers, the program also offers training awards to support scientists interested in diabetes research at various stages through their careers. In addition, the Association supports targeted and "donor-driven" research grants, funding specific program areas that are of interest to both the donor and the Association.     The Career Development and Junior Faculty awards, for example, provide young scientists the salary and research support necessary to establish a track record of success that will allow them to receive increased funding opportunities from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The mentor-based training awards match clinical students and recent doctoral candidates with outstanding senior scientists to help them strive towards careers in research. The Association's Research Program provides general grant support to both new and established investigators, specialized grants assisting clinical and innovative researchers, and opportunities for investigators as they advance their careers and the field of diabetes research and care.

Program Description:

Advocacy and public awareness - The Association acts as an advocate for people with diabetes by delivering programs with important diabetes messages to the general public and to all levels of the government.

Program Long-Term Success:

ADVOCACY AND PUBLIC AWARENESSAdvocacy   Advocacy is a critical piece in the American Diabetes Association’s work to fulfill its mission. The Association fights for people with diabetes in Washington, D.C., in state capitols and in our courts. Diabetes Advocates around the country work to increase federal and state funding to prevent, treat and cure diabetes; prevent diabetes and improve access to adequate and affordable health care; and eliminate discrimination against people with diabetes at school, work and elsewhere in their lives. Awareness, Education & Support   In 2010, about 1.9 million Americans aged 20 years or older heard the words “you have diabetes.” While nearly 26 million Americans have diabetes (8.3% of the U.S. population), sadly, 7 million of those are unaware they have this life-long disease. Yet, early diagnosis is critical to successful treatment and delaying or preventing some of its complications such as heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney disease, amputation and death. As diabetes has reached epidemic proportions, all Americans must understand that diabetes is not just a "condition," but a disease with deadly consequences. To increase the public’s awareness of diabetes and the related urgency, the American Diabetes Association reaches out to people affected by diabetes and their families and caregivers, at-risk populations, health care professionals and the general public via targeted public awareness efforts and educational programs. The American Diabetes Association integrates a public awareness message into virtually every program and fund-raising activity.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

In the United States, 25.8 million children and adults have diabetes. While an estimated 18.8 million of those have been diagnosed with diabetes, unfortunately, 7 million are unaware that they have the disease. In addition, another 79 million Americans have prediabetes. Prediabetes is a condition that occurs when a person's blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough for a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. Diabetes kills more Americans every year than breast cancer and AIDS combined; doubles the risk of heart attack and stroke; and is the number one cause of blindness in adults. Diabetes costs the U.S. $174 billion each year. Recent estimates project that as many as 1 in 3 American adults will have diabetes by 2050 if present trends continue.   The Association’s ultimate goal is to Stop Diabetes®, once and for all. To render diabetes powerless, the Association funds research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes and its complications; delivers services to communities across the United States; provides objective and credible information through multiple media and channels; and is actively involved in advocacy and awareness efforts to educate people about the disease and to give voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes. The American Diabetes Association’s nationwide Stop Diabetes movement invites people to Share, Act, Learn and Give to help put an end to diabetes. At the end of 2010, the Association surpassed its goal of inspiring one million Americans to be part of this critical movement in its first full year of existence. At the American Diabetes Association, we take our responsibility seriously to be good financial stewards, while ensuring that the funds we raise benefit those affected by diabetes. An average of 73% of all expenses goes directly into mission activities that include funding diabetes research, delivering information to consumers and health care professionals, advocating on behalf of individuals with diabetes, and helping to educate the public about diabetes and its deadly consequences.
