Pennsylvanians 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 Philadelphia 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 Greater Philadelphia Tour de Cure is a ride, not a race, with routes designed for everyone from the occasional rider to the experienced cyclist.
The American Diabetes Association Camp Freedom is a resident camp program for boys and girls ages 7 to 16. This year will be the 15th year of our camp.
Our programs are delivered by a committed staff with extensive experience working with diverse populations and with those living with diabetes. Our Live Empowered and Por tu Familia programs adress the lack of general diabetes education for members of the African-American and Latino community, by offering comprehensive information about the long term complications that can be avoided with proper diabetes care and management.
For more information about our programs, please contact Michelle Foster at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We welcome your help.
Your involvement as an American Diabetes Association volunteer — whether on a local or national level — will help us expand our community outreach and impact, inspire healthy living, intensify our advocacy efforts, raise critical dollars to fund our mission, and uphold our reputation as the moving force and trusted leader in the diabetes community.
