Our Mission

The African American Diabetes Association (AADA) is a national tax-exempt 501c3 nonprofit organization that seeks to educate African Americans and the general public about diabetes. We work to assist those impacted to manage and prevent diabetes (including type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes, and
pre-diabetes). AADA is passionate, serious, and committed to diabetes prevention and educational programs that work to end health disparities.

We advocate for African Americans affected by diabetic conditions and empower African Americans to maximize their quality of life and raise public consciousness while advancing the search for a universal cure.
