Adults and children in Georgia are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as more than 1,000,000 suffer from this deadly disease, 350,000 of whom don't even know they have it! 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, Atlanta/North Georgia Region 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.
Claim your victory and stop diabetes by attending this full-day conference geared towards the African American community, but open to everyone! Victory Over Diabetes is for adults with diabetes, those at risk for diabetes and anyone interested in changing the future of diabetes in their lives and the lives of their loved ones!
Step Out is a fundraising walk that takes place in more than 160 cities to raise awareness about diabetes and to raise much needed funds to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
