More than 33,000 people in Lubbock live with diabetes daily and 85,800 live with pre-diabetes. Diabetes continues to rise at alarming rates. Three friends, neighbors, co-workers or family members will be diagnosed every minute of every day.
The American Diabetes Association is the only organization fighting all types of diabetes - type 1, type 2, and gestational- children and adults. In West Texas and New Mexico we connect families, visit children and teens who are newly diagnosed, provide people with the latest knowledge to help them most effectively manage diabetes daily and much more.
We are here to help!
