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.
The Georgia area is served by offices in Atlanta and Savannah.
