Albany & Central New York
New Yorkers are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as thousands of people suffer from the disease, and many others may have diabetes and not know it! It is estimated that one out of every three children born after 2000 in the United States will be directly affected by diabetes.
That is why the American Diabetes Association's Albany 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.
Held March 27, 2018, American Diabetes Association Alert Day® is a day to sound the alarm about the prevalence of type 2 diabetes by asking everyone to take the Type 2 Diabetes Risk Test. The free, anonymous risk test only takes a minute to complete. By answering questions such as “Do you have a family history of diabetes?” and “Are you physically active?” you can learn if you’re at risk for type 2 diabetes in 60 seconds.
Take advantage of our wide variety of continuing education activities for health care professionals such as the Innovations in Diabetes Care (Albany, NY). This activity has been developed by leaders in the field of diabetes with the goal of providing you cutting-edge education to advance knowledge, and strategies to improve clinical practice and patient outcomes.
Continuing education credits are available for physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, dietitians, pharmacists, certified diabetes educators and other health care professionals. For more information about Professional Education opportunities, please visit professional.diabetes.org
