Support the Institute
Support Diabetes Education, Clinical Care and Research Programs
Since its founding in 1993, the Florida Hospital Diabetes Institute has relied on generous philanthropic contributions to fund the margin of excellence in healthcare the Central Florida community deserves. As diabetes continues to grow at epidemic rates, community support will help ensure expert clinical care and innovative education remain available throughout the region.
As a leading “Center of Excellence” at Florida Hospital, generous donors helped build the state of the art Diabetes Institute, continue to fund hundreds of education scholarships annually and support the Institute’s free and open-to-the-public Demonstration Cooking and Shopping Programs.
Your generous gifts could help sustain and grow a number of programs in our diabetes and endocrine centers in the areas of:
Diabetes Education - Your donations to this area provide diabetes classes to uninsured and underinsured patients. Community service programs such as Cooking Series, lectures by physicians and Certified Diabetes Educators, and free testing events are also possible thanks to donors to the Diabetes Education Program.
Clinical Care - Funds donated for clinical care are used to acquire specialized medical equipment that benefits all patients who are treated at the clinic.
Diabetes and Metabolic Research - Donations to this program are used to cover the time and expenses of physicians who work on research lab work and trials to discover new therapies, treatments and ways to reduce diabetes complications. Funds donated to this program help all patients with diabetes and metabolic diseases.
