Approximately 300,000 people in Western Pennsylvania have diabetes. An additional 100,000+ are still undetected. It is estimated that one out of every three children born in the United States will be directly affected by diabetes.
The American Diabetes Association's Pittsburgh office is so committed to educating the public about how to stop diabetes and support those living with the disease. We have a variety of local events and want to encourage you to get involved!
