The JDA (Jewish Diabetes Association) is the nation's first and leading Jewish non-profit, non-sectarian health organization devoted to diabetes education and advocacy. Founded in 1985, the JDA has various projects reaching hundreds of communities both in the United States and Internationally. We are the only organization offering all our services (website, magazine, contact persons etc) in Both English and Hebrew. We hope to be adding four additional languages in the near future.
The mission of the Association is to spread the awareness of the need and possibility of the prevention and optimal control of diabetes and to help improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. We have a strong focus on the correlation between obesity, diabetes and other diabetes health related issues.
