Many of us have a BFF (Best Friend Forever) that we look to for laughs, encouragement and support. But those with diabetes or pre-diabetes also need someone who can be a friend and understand a diabetic lifestyle. That’s what we call a DFF – Diabetes Friend Forever.

DFFs are friends, family members, caregivers and healthcare professionals who make a difference in the lives of those living with diabetes. They are teachers, counselors, coaches, and best friends to some of the 104 million Americans who have diabetes or pre-diabetes today.

Stay tuned for the next Diabetes Friends Forever program that Dreamfields Pasta will launch in 2014.
