San Antonio, Texas
San Antonians are increasingly at risk of diabetes as tens of thousands are diagnosed annually. The fight to stop this silent killer starts at home, where our community's diabetic population stands at over 14% which is over the national average of 9%. With projections of one out of every three children born after 2000 in the United States will be directly affected by diabetes by 2050, the time to act is now!
That is why the American Diabetes Association's San Antonio office is so committed to finding a cure, educating the public about how to Stop Diabetes and providing support for those living with the disease are central to our mission.
We are here to help.
The American Diabetes Association's San Antonio office provides great local programs for people living with diabetes, their friends and family. For more information about these and other programs offered by the Association, please contact Caroline Blanco at email@example.com.
Life isn't fair for people with diabetes. First, there is the simple fact of coping with a chronic illness. Second, there are the barriers that prevent people with diabetes from enjoying the same opportunities as the rest of the population. Our Advocacy efforts work to bring down the barriers and fund research to Stop Diabetes®.
