Message from the President

We work to empower people with diabetes or at risk, their families and the society as a whole, to reduce the overall impact of diabetes in Colombia and the region. We undertake educational, awareness and scientific activities to advance this larger purpose, often in collaboration with local authorities, or with other scientific or patient associations.
