People
People work for the American Diabetes Association because of opportunity, environment, benefits and culture; they remain employees because they are passionate about our cause. Our employees receive gratification knowing their work directly affects the well-being of millions of people directly affected by diabetes and their families.

There is a distinct difference in knowing that at the end of the day, your work really made a difference and can change lives, rather than increasing the financial well-being of corporate shareholders.
