I Decide to Stop Diabetes

ID Day

The American Diabetes Association works tirelessly to reach communities throughout the United States to create awareness, prevent diabetes among at-risk populations and ensure that all people with diabetes get the best care, treatment and information about how to manage their diabetes.

During American Diabetes Month, the Association encourages faith and community organizations to unite families and loved ones in their community for the I Decide to Stop Diabetes Day and pledge to live a healthier lifestyle. Working together, we can Stop Diabetes. Get free resources for your organization today!
