Working Together in Diabetes
The mission of the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation is to help reduce health disparities by strengthening community-based health care worker capacity, integrating medical care and community-based supportive services, and mobilizing communities in the fight against disease.
Together on Diabetes™ will target adult populations in the United States that are disproportionately affected by type 2 diabetes and will support projects and partnerships that:
- help adults living with type 2 diabetes to better self-manage their disease and navigate care with sustained and relevant support for the course of their disease journey;
- integrate and coordinate medical, non-medical and policy efforts at the community level, and swell the base of individuals and organizations actively involved in and bringing their know-how, reach, influence and assets to the fight against type 2 diabetes; and
- Innovation Fund to radically rethink and test new ideas about how diabetes control efforts are approached given the current and future scale of the epidemic
