Welcome to The Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi

Our mission is simple—we save lives every day! The Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi (DFM) is the state's premier nonprofit health organization working to prevent diabetes and associated complications as well as work to improve the lives of every child, adult, and every family touched by type 1 or type 2 diabetes. We accomplish this through education, support, advocacy, medical assistance and research.                                  Read More

Mississippi's Walk for Diabetes - Join us in Gulfport on March 5 and in Oxford on April 3, 2022

Walk, stroll, and roll with the DFM and help support Mississippi kids and adults living with type 1 or type 2 diabetes!

The walk theme is "Lean On Me." During the pandemic, we have all learned how important our support networks are. We all lean on others in some way: our health care providers, coworkers, friends, and family.

Support those you love with diabetes by creating teams of families, friends, classmates, sports teams, Sunday school classes, and co-workers to walk in their honor! Individual walkers are also welcome as well as Virtual walkers/teams!
