TDI Mission, Vision & Goals

Texas Diabetes Institute Mission, Vision and Goals


The mission of the Texas Diabetes Institute is to prevent diabetes and its complications through health promotion, patient education, professional training, treatment and research.


The vision of the Texas Diabetes Institute is to serve as a national resource center in the treatment and education of Diabetes Mellitus and to find a cure for the common forms of diabetes through clinical and basic research. We wish to be particularly sensitive to the unique needs of all people affected by diabetes in our community, the state of Texas and beyond. The Institute will address the whole person, the family and the community, not just the disease. It will encompass health, not just medicine; and will target outcomes.


The goal of the Texas Diabetes Institute is to provide ongoing state-of-the-art preventive care through innovative activities which will enable us to detect and intervene in the progression of this devastating disease.
