Arizonans and New Mexicans are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes. Today, nearly 700,000 Arizonans and 222,000 New Mexicans have diabetes - that's almost 1 million people across the two states! The American Diabetes Association can provide resources for you and your family about all types of diabetes as well as information for caregivers and others affected indirectly by the disease.
The American Diabetes Association's Phoenix office is committed to educating our communities about how to Stop Diabetes and supporting those living with the disease.
We are here to help!
The Phoenix office serves Northern Arizona and New Mexico.

Learning to live with type 1 diabetes does not happen overnight - our message to parents and children is that you don't have to do it alone. The American Diabetes Association's Youth Programs connects families to other families of children with diabetes. An integral part of thess programs is Camp AZDA, the Arizona's week-long residential summer youth camp where campers participate in traditional camp activities and gain independence, grow in confidence and discover new skills, all while receiving medical care.
For more information about our Youth Programs, please contact Edyth Haro at firstname.lastname@example.org.
