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.


Upcoming Events

July 21, 2018 Corvette Classic
For over 60 years, they’ve captured our hearts and our imaginations… From their first showing at GM’s Motorama in 1953 to the latest C7 Corvette Stingray, we have had a love affair with America’s sports car - the Corvette!

Car enthusiasts will get a chance to see several generations of this classic icon at the 7th annual Mississippi Corvette Classic, hosted by the Mississippi Corvette Club, Inc. at the Jackson Convention Complex on Saturday, July 21, 2018. The doors will be open to the public from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Admission will be $5.00 for all over the age of 13. The net proceeds from this event will benefit the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi.

WE ARE FAMILY!
"We are family!" is our theme for 2018! Bring your Sisters with you along with your Brothers, Mom, Dad, Best Friends and Extended Family to walk and make a difference in the lives of people you care about who live with diabetes 24/7! Share some of that love and celebrate with the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi!

Walk in support of someone's Grandmother who cannot afford her medications or towards a camp scholarship for a newly diagnosed child who can attend summer diabetes camp through your generosity.  Everyday miracles happen from your caring and support!
