Diabetes affects the lives of nearly 26 million children and adults in this country and another 79 million with prediabetes. If current trends continue, one in three children will face a future with diabetes. It's a tragedy that doesn’t have to happen. By working with Congress and State Legislators, we can stop the diabetes epidemic in America.
