Albany & Central New York
Did you know that here in New York an estimated 2 million people, or 12.5% of the population now have diabetes. Of these, 517,000 of them have diabetes and simply do not know it. In addition, 5,412,000 people in New York, or a staggering 36.2% of the population, have prediabetes. Every year an estimated 66,000 people in New York are diagnosed with diabetes. It is our mission to educate those living with diabetes and prediabetes as well as to prevent more New Yorkers from getting diabetes.
That is why the American Diabetes Association's Albany & Central New York office is so committed to educating the public about how to stop diabetes and support those living with the disease.
We are here to help!
The Albany & Central New York office serves the areas of Albany and Syracuse.

Life isn't fair for people with diabetes. First, there is the simple fact of coping with a chronic illness.

Our Advocacy efforts work to bring down the barriers and fund critical diabetes research. Take action and become a Diabetes Advocate today!
