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.
