Hawaiians are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes. Today, nearly 155,000 people in Hawaii have diabetes. The American Diabetes Association can provide resources for you and your family about all types of diabetes as well as information for caregivers and others affected indirectly by the disease.
The American Diabetes Association's Hawaii office is committed to educating our communities about how to Stop Diabetes and supporting those living with the disease.
We are here to help!
For additional information about any of our programs, please contact our Hawaii Office at 808-947-5979 or email ADAHawaii@diabetes.org.

Become a Diabetes Advocate!
Life isn't fair for people with diabetes. First, there is the simple fact of coping with a chronic illness.

Our Advocacy efforts work to bring down the barriers and fund critical diabetes research. Take action and become a Diabetes Advocate today!
