Voice of the Diabetic is the only national publication that focuses on making life with diabetic complications less complicated. Published quarterly by the NFB Diabetes Action Network (DAN), Voice of the Diabetic has a circulation of 330,000 copies. Since 1985, diabetic consumers, families and health care providers have been returning to the Voice for insight and inspiration.

Our Mission: The NFB Diabetes Action Network educates, empowers, and inspires people living with diabetes and its complications. We share the National Federation of the Blind’s “can-do” philosophy, through Voice of the Diabetic magazine, volunteer peer support, and advocacy for accessible diabetes technology. Together, we challenge one another to live our best and fullest lives.
