City of Hope and the Lions: A Successful Partnership for over 60 Years
Lions Clubs International and City of Hope share a core principle: humanitarian service and concern, and both organizations have made tremendous contributions for the good of mankind. Lions Clubs International’s support for City of Hope over the last six decades has been, and continues to be, an invaluable resource in furthering City of Hope’s mission of advancing science while providing compassionate care.
In 2019, City of Hope and the Lions Clubs International will be partnering to find new ways to prevent and treat type 2 diabetes and its complications. The Lions Clubs Diabetes Innovation Fund will consist of projects that are diverse in aims, with studies identified and prioritized by their potential to advance research on type 2 diabetes and its many complications. With a total investment of $1 million over five years, Lions Clubs will have the opportunity to drive research leading to prevent and treat type 2 diabetes.
