People in Wisconsin are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes. Over 541,000 Wisconsin residents suffer from the disease and many others may have diabetes and not even 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, and by 2050, one in three American adults will have diabetes.
That is why the American Diabetes Association's Wisconsin office is so committed to educating the public about how tostop diabetes and support those living with the disease.
We are here to help!
Family Link is a local program that enables families of kids or teens with diabetes to get to know each other and find support from each other. If you are interested hosting a Family Link event in your area, please contact Jenna Joswiak at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608-222-7785.
