Together on Diabetes™ is the flagship philanthropic program of the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation. It was launched in November 2010 with the goal to improve the health outcomes of people living with type 2 diabetes in the United States by strengthening patient self-management education, community-based supportive services and broad-based community mobilization. Consistent with the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation’s mission to promote health equity and improve health outcomes, this initiative targets adult populations disproportionately affected by type 2 diabetes.
