INDIANAPOLIS — Lilly Diabetes has donated funds to the Diabetes Scholars Foundation, the drug maker announced Wednesday.
Lilly Diabetes said the $100,000 contribution will be donated to the foundation's scholarship fund, which supports the organization's mission to empower young people with Type 1 diabetes. The donation will be used to fund college scholarships for students with Type 1 diabetes, as well as conference scholarships for families to attend the 2012 Children with Diabetes Friends for Life conference in Orlando, Fla.
"In everything we do, we encourage people with diabetes to follow their dreams," Lilly Diabetes VP Steve Sugino said. "It's a priority for us to support these amazing young people as they prove over and over again that diabetes doesn't stand in their way of achieving their goals."
