Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Floridans are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as thousands of 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. In South Florida approximately over half of a million adults are currently living with diabetes.

That is why the American Diabetes Association's South Florida 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.
