Diabetes Disaster Response

Managing diabetes is challenging enough on a day-to-day basis. In an emergency, having access to needed medical care and supplies can be a matter of life and death. We and our partners in the award-winning Diabetes Disaster Response Coalition (formerly the Diabetes Emergency Relief Coalition) are committed to delivering life-saving medical care and supplies to areas affected by disasters.

Are you concerned about Hurricane Sally or the wildfires in the western United States affecting your access to diabetes supplies?

Contact us for assistance:

  • Do you have diabetes or are you caring for someone with diabetes? Learn how to protect yourself and your family during an emergency. 1-800-DIABETES (800.342.2383) is available to support people with diabetes and their loved ones.
  • Physicians and health care providers can call our 1-314-INSULIN hotline to report diabetes supply shortages and request support. 

Follow the Coalition on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates.

We need Society members to help staff our insulin supply hotline, provide clinical assistance via Skype, or help deliver and coordinate supplies on the ground in the event of an emergency. Contact [email protected] for more information on volunteer opportunities.
