FOEDRC Pioneering the Way

March 2021

This month, the Spring 2021 issue of the Iowa Magazine devoted its cover and featured the University of Iowa Fraternal Order of Eagles Diabetes Research Center (FOEDRC).  The heartwarming article shares real life testimonies of diabetic individuals, cared for at the University of Iowa and the impact  of diabetes on their daily life.  The desire for relief is real and certainly not lost on physicians and scientists at the FOEDRC.   The Center’s mission is to improve the lives of individuals with the disease and find a cure.  Every day dedicated FOEDRC scientists conduct a wide range of research projects to improve and benefit the lives of many. 

In addition to featuring the work of specific FOEDRC members and  highlighting the commitment of the FOEDRC to training the next generation of diabetes researchers,  the article reminds us of the generous $25 million gift from the Fraternal Order of Eagles.  Without the generosity of the Eagles, we would not have been able to make these wonderful strides in diabetes research.  Thank you.
