On behalf of the Mary & Dick Allen Diabetes Center and all of the patients and families we serve, we offer our heart-felt gratitude to our donors for their support. Their generosity provides resources to implement innovative technological advances, expand our support programs, provide education and training to our nurses and staff, and maintain the level of excellence we strive for each day. Simply put, our patients have a better experience because of our donors.
Philanthropic gifts have supported the following projects within the Allen Diabetes Center
- Herbert Program for Youth in Transition: Many young adults find the transition from pediatric diabetes care to adult diabetes care a tough one. This program is focused on meeting the unique needs of young adults with type 1 diabetes (age 18-30). The program addresses the financial, psychological, social and physical changes that challenge not only the young adult but also their family and support system.
- Ueberroth Programs for Women – Sweet Success: a state-affiliated program designed to identify women with diabetes, who are planning to become pregnant,and normalize their blood sugars before pregnancy. Once pregnant, the program teaches women who develop gestational diabetes, as well as those who enter pregnancy with diabetes, to tightly control their blood sugars throughout the pregnancy to help ensure a safe pregnancy and a healthy baby.
