Louisiana

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.

    Father of the Year 2017

    New Orleans, Louisiana
    The purpose of this award is to recognize men who have made their families a priority, while balancing demanding careers and community involvement. Every year, the Father's Day Council in each city identifies honorees who meet the criteria to be nominated as a Father of the Year. By honoring men who are community leaders, we draw attention to the event and further the council’s goal to heighten awareness of the importance of fatherhood. We hope you will join us in supporting the amazing gentlemen who will be honored at this year's event!
