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.
The American Diabetes Association's New Orleans office covers Louisiana and Mississippi.

Louisiana is one of only eight Association offices that hosted a continuing education program in 2014. The program focused on the management of a child in the school setting. We hope to continue to broaden our scope of information for our 2015 program.
I Decide to Stop Diabetes
The I Decide to Stop Diabetes campaign, formerly known as ID Day, is a nationwide annual three-week effort (from Nov. 9 to Nov. 30) that encourages faith and community-based organizations to join with other organizations across the country to Take the Pledge to live a healthier life to Stop Diabetes.
Together with the Greater New Orleans Foundation, our office is participating in the second annual GiveNOLA Day on Tuesday, May 5. For one day only, you will be able to donate to the American Diabetes Association's Louisiana office from anywhere by visiting our page. Your generosity will help us continue to community programs we are able to provide for those individuals who are affected by diabetes. Mark your calendars for May 5!
