Solutions serving ADA's Professional Member Network

American Diabetes Association

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) is the nation's leading voluntary health organization whose mission is to prevent and cure diabetes, and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. The ADA drives discovery by funding research to treat, manage and prevent all types of diabetes, as well as to search for cures; raises voice to the urgency of the diabetes epidemic; and works to safeguard policies and programs that protect people with diabetes. In addition, the ADA professional engagement portal supports people living with diabetes, those at risk of developing diabetes, and the health care professionals who serve them through information and programs that can improve health outcomes and quality of life.

The American Diabetes Association selected iXiam to design, develop and maintain DiabetesPro, the portal for professional members. We built the platform using Drupal and CiviCRM for the management of the professional member directory.
