An estimated 29.1 million Americans have diabetes. Over 90% have type 2 diabetes.

86 million Americans—1 in every 3— have prediabetes. Only 10% have been diagnosed.

Diabetes costs the US $245 billion a year; $176 billion in direct costs, $69 billion in lost productivity.

Our Mission

The Dare Two Foundation was created to impact the lives of people with prediabetes
to increase awareness of the disease and the importance of diagnosis, and motivate healthy behaviors that can help prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.

Dare Two will achieve this goal by applying the Design Thinking process of research, ideation, testing and implementation to create solutions that make a difference in the fight to prevent type 2 diabetes.

About Dare Two

The Dare Two Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. To achieve our mission, Dare Two will focus our efforts on 3 main areas:

Activation

  • Raising awareness of the type 2 diabetes/prediabetes crisis
  • Providing access to free or low-cost testing and diagnosis
  • Increasing the percentage of diagnosed prediabetics by promoting the primary benefit of early diagnosis —many people can reverse prediabetes!

Understanding

  • Engaging in sociological and ethnographic research to identify behaviors and triggers that make people susceptible to developing prediabetes and type 2 diabetes

(Behavioral) Design

  • Identifying and developing programs that can help prediabetics change behaviors and work toward preventing diabetes
  • Partnering with other organizations to develop products and programs that support our mission of eliminating type 2 diabetes in the United States
