Northeast Ohioans are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as nearly 330,000 people 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 Northeast Ohio 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.

Welness Lives Here
America is abuzz about wellness, and for good reason. Studies show that regular physical activity and maintaining a healthy weight are key to reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes. Yet today, more than one-third of Americans are obese—a condition that contributes to the rising rates of type 2 diabetes. We know that people need to be championed and supported to reach their wellness goals.
365 Days of Wellness
Wellness Lives Here is designed to inspire healthful habits at work and beyond. For some, it will mean fewer sick days and higher productivity. For others, it will mean looking and feeling better. For all, it will mean more empowered Americans who can better control, delay or prevent type 2 diabetes and related health problems. Year-round engagement will empower companies, organizations and community groups to drive healthy behaviors and to amplify the message.
