Together on Diabetes is a 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.
