Our great state of Alaska holds over 68,500 people with diabetes. The American Diabetes Association in Alaska touches every corner of the state to help provide support and educational materials to all those in need.
The Anchorage and Fairbanks offices field calls for discrimination and place calls for action from Alaskan communities. Join us in our effort to advocate for rights of people with diabetes, promote healthy lifestyles to prevent diabetes, and send children with type 1 diabetes to camp!
