Supporting Diabetes Research, Treatment and Education
Between 20 and 40 percent of patients admitted to Scripps hospitals have diabetes. That’s why Scripps Health has launched an $8 million philanthropic campaign designed to enhance the quality of life for people coping with this chronic disease and its complications.
A unique feature of this campaign is the Diabetes Program Endowment. This enduring financial resource will ensure that the funding to transform state-of-the-art research into timely treatments will be there for generations to come. Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute, the Type 1 diabetes program, and a variety of patient and community education and wellness programs will also be supported by this endowment.
A new destination for advanced diabetes care
The campaign will also establish Scripps Diabetes Care and Research Center, bringing researchers, physicians, nurses, technicians, and patient educators together in one convenient location.
