501(c)3 non-profit chartered in Mississippi since 1965. The mission of the DFM is to provide hope through programs, services and research to all Mississippians, from our children to our seniors, who have diabetes. 100% of all donations stay in Mississippi to fund programs, services and research.
The DFM has several innovative programs including, "It's Not a Sweet Subject," a program to train school and daycare staff to recognize and respond appropriately to diabetic emergencies at school/daycare. "Helping Hands" provides emergency medical assistance to Mississippians. Patient and professional education programs, education for law enforcement and emergency personnel are a few of our programs.
