About Us

The Minnesota Lions Diabetes Foundation is founded by the Lions Clubs of Minnesota and their dedicated volunteer members who are strongly committed to improving the lives of people with diabetes by raising funds and collaborating with partners to do diabetes research, diabetes education, and sponsor preventative health activities that provide a caring and valued community service while helping to find a cure for diabetes.

PDG Dr. Ray Lindeman

In my 66 years in Lion's service there have been numerous enjoyable challenges.  One of the greatest was my duties as Diabetes Chairman of MD5M from 1997 through 2000.   While vacationing in Arizona I had access to a Native American shop with numerous designs of dream catchers to create our Dream Catcher award.  Our contributions to diabetes research have brought us wonderfully close to a cure for Type 1 diabetes.  Newer medications and lifestyle changes for Type 2 diabetics have greatly improved health in these patients.  I am truly GRATEFUL for having had the privilege of working with Lions Diabetes and proving our motto --WE SERVE.
