Bridgewater, New Jersey
New Jerseyans are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as over 904,000 residents 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 New Jersey 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.
The American Diabetes Association's New Jersey office provides great local programs for people living with diabetes, their friends and family. Learn about our available programs.
