Louisianans 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.
That is why the American Diabetes Association's Louisiana 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.

Now Louisiana's children who have diabetes can be Safe at School! In the state of Louisiana, Senate Bill (SB) 759 - signed into law on June 15, 2012, was a major achievement for the Safe at School (SAS) campaign. The bill, hard-fought and a long time-coming, authorizes school employees to volunteer and be trained to help children with diabetes in school. These volunteers may now administer insulin and glucagon to help control children's glucose levels. The bill also allows children who are able to do so to self-manage their diabetes when at school. Read the full story.
The new Volunteer Center is up and running. See what volunteer opportunities are available to you at the Association's Louisiana office. We look forward to working with you!
We receive many calls daily requesting information for health fairs. If you are part of an organization, club or church group that will be hosting a health fair and would like informational brochures and documents, please give take a look at the Health Fair section of our website.
