Educate. Empower. Prevent.

Who We Are

The Skinny Gene Project is a division of the J. Moss Foundation that addresses the environment-based issues, or social atmospheres, that affect a person’s ability to prevent diabetes. Our organization shapes an individual’s environment so their decision to improve their health is met with guidance and encouragement, and their first step forward is not their last.

Families Need Your Help

For the first time in history, today’s children are not expected to outlive their parents. The current diabetes epidemic will threaten 1 in 3 children, and may rob them of up to 28 years of life. This doesn’t have to be the legacy we leave our youth. Our proven, evidence-based program will teach families how to eat to prevent diabetes and protect their children’s future.

Together we can make a difference

The Skinny Gene Project was the first organization in San Diego County to join the National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP) to meet the growing demand for effective programs to help adults prevent type 2 diabetes.

Now, we are using our 8 years of experience, as a non-profit specializing in diabetes prevention, to launch on-site programs all over San Diego County and online programs nationwide. We know that with partnerships, and people like you, we can make prevention possible.
