Local chapters and affiliates use volunteers to organize educational and screening programs and to conduct fundraising activities to support research aimed at care, control, and cure of diabetes. The Association supports research into the nature and cause of diabetes, more effective means of treatment, factors leading to complications, and prevention and cure of diabetes. Salary support is provided to promising young researchers, and research grants provide scientists with equipment, supplies, and technical assistance for the study of diabetes. Research symposia and scientific sessions are conducted annually. Five professional journals keep the medical and scientific communities up to date in their respective fields.
