Californians 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 Sacramento 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.
Costumes Encouraged. Join the American Diabetes Association for a family friendly Halloween skate night including treat bags, skating and diabetes information.

Join us as we honor men who are seen as leaders in their communities.
A local program for families of children with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Core components of Family Link include family mentor program for newly diagnosed children, social events and diabetes education.
