The Women's Interprofessional Network of the American Diabetes Association (WIN ADA) is our members-only network for female clinicians, scientists, educators, and other health professionals in diabetes. The group’s goals are simple, yet profound:

  • Strengthen the voice and presence of women in diabetes research and clinical practice
  • Recognize the significant contributions of women to the diabetes field
  • Provide career development and networking opportunities to women of all career stages to help them achieve their full potential
  • Increase research efforts on women’s health and sex as a biological variable in diabetes
