While our physical office is located in Omaha, Nebraska, we serve all three states in various capacities. We host events locally in Omaha, Nebraska, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Sioux City, Iowa and we work to educate and advocate for people across all three states. As a country, we are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as millions of people suffer from the disease while many others have diabetes and do not know it! It is estimated that one out of every three children born after the year 2000 in the United States will be directly affected by diabetes.
That is why the American Diabetes Association's local 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 Diabetes Busters program was developed by professionals in the field of education, nursing, nutrition, physical education and fitness from the University of Iowa and the American Diabetes Association to present information about diabetes to 4th graders in a fun and interesting way that engage students. It is set up in three different stations that each child visits: one focusing on diabetes education, one focusing on nutrition and one focusing on exercise.
For more information on the Diabetes Busters program, please contact Doug Bickford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We welcome your help.
