Welcome to Da Suga Foundation, Inc. new web page. We are excited about our new look and hope that you enjoy the changes we have made and the new information to help those afflicted and their families with diabetes. Da Suga Foundation is an award winning 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization whose mission is to change the face of diabetes through communication, collaboration, and education.

Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death in the U.S. with over 29 million people being diagnosed with this disorder. Diabetes kills more people every year then breast cancer and AIDS combined. Because diabetes is considered a self- managing disease, education is imperative to the proper management and control of its symptoms and devastating effects.

The financial burden diabetes places on the healthcare industry is horrendous with over 245 billion dollars being spent on diabetes care and lost wages. This is a 40% increase between 2007 and 2012. The Centers for Disease Control has deemed this disease an epidemic with 86 million people now being diagnosed with pre-diabetes. Let’s stop this disease in its track by doing our part to educate ourselves and arm ourselves with the tools we need to live healthier.

Da Suga Foundation ALWAYS puts on a show when we show up. Our eventsare just as entertaining as they are educational.
