Georgia & Alabama
Adults and children in Georgia and Alabama are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as more than 1,700,000 suffer from this deadly disease. If present trends continue, it is estimated that one out of every three children, one in two minority children, faces a future with diabetes.
That is why the American Diabetes Association's Georgia & Alabama office is so committed to educating the public about how to stop diabetes and support those living with this disease.
We are here to help and invite you to join us. You will be helping us to confront it, fight it and stop it.
This office serves the states of Georgia and Alabama.
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.
