Oregon - SW Washington
People living in Oregon and SW Washington are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as thousands of people suffer from the disease, and many others may have diabetes and not even 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 Oregon and SW Washington 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.
American Diabetes Month
American Diabetes Month, takes place each November, and is designed to focus the nation's attention on the issues surrounding diabetes and the many people who are impacted by the disease. This year's theme for American Diabetes Month is "Eat Well, America!" and we will show our nation how easy and joyful healthy eating can be.
