DFI believes that as a collective group we can make our community stronger than through the work of just one entity, therefore we are dedicated to creating partnerships that bring DFI, healthcare providers and businesses together. Our core partnerships include:

Healthcare: Hospitals, Healthcare Groups, Doctors and CDE’s enlist DFI to support patients who need the high touch personal support that DFI offers. After almost three decades of serving children and adults with diabetes, DFI understands how important it is for patients to have a healthcare plan that allows them to manage their care. Our close partners include Hackensack Meridian Health, CarePoint Health, Summit Medical Group, St. Joseph’s Hospital and more.

Business Collaborations:  Bringing together a diverse group of businesses interested in building a healthy community and workforce allows DFI to build our programs and further our reach. The Diabetes Foundation collaborates with both local and national organizations.  DFI offers the opportunity for both event sponsorships and strategic collaborations. Close partners include BD, Inserra Supermarkets, Novo Nordisk, M&T Bank and Oritani Bank to name a few.
