MDP Mission

Our purpose is to ensure that all people impacted by diabetes are empowered by knowledge, encouraged by action and supported by community! There's joy in the journey as we walk alongside each other.

The Muscatine Diabetes Project is a 501(c)(3) volunteer charitable non-profit organization founded in 2016, and its mission is to provide adult and youth diabetes education programs, outreach activities, support groups, along with helping fill the gap between the patient and their health care provider.
