Ensuring that every person with diabetes receives the best possible care
Founded in 1967, International Diabetes Center (IDC) is known internationally for its experience and expertise in patient education, professional training, research, and models for patient-centered care and quality improvement.
We believe in a patient-centered, team approach to diabetes care. With a focus on the relationship between the patient, provider and educator to ensure that each receives the information and tools needed to improve patient health. We translate new research findings into clinical practice and discover innovative ways to use technology to improve diabetes care. And we continue to shape the community – and the world – to help people live well with diabetes.
Research keeps us at the forefront of diabetes treatment and technology. Working with National Institutes of Health, the health care industry and research foundations, we have conducted hundreds of research studies over the past 40 years. These include the landmark Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT), the Action to Control Cardiovascular Risk in Diabetes (ACCORD) trial and the Glycemia Reduction Approaches in Diabetes: A comparative Effectiveness Study (GRADE).
