Peter Sheehan Diabetes Care Foundation

Peter Sheehan Diabetes Care Foundation


“The Peter Sheehan Diabetes Care Foundation (PSDCF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has been created with the goal of reducing the global incidence of Type 2 Diabetes (T2D), while improving the lives of those already affected by the disease. Inspired by the work of the late Dr. Peter Sheehan, PSDCF seeks to improve T2D care and prevention for at-risk populations, educate communities to prevent onset of T2D and the complications, and organize forums for scientific ideas exchange to further the understanding of T2D.

PSDCF is passionate about taking on the global T2D epidemic by empowering communities with the necessary tools to manage and improve their health. We are in an increasingly connected world in which we can all readily benefit from advances in clinical technologies, evidence-based health data analytics, and improved communication between the patient and their care team. T2D is a complex disease that can lead to further health complications if left uncontrolled. Nevertheless, with proper course of action, T2D and its complications are preventable and manageable.”
