San Diego, California

Of the nearly 30 million Americans living with diabetes, more than 4 million are in California. That's 13.4% of the Golden State's adult population, significantly higher than the national average of 9.4%.

That is why the American Diabetes Association's Greater San Diego Area office is so committed to educating the public about how to stop diabetes and support those living with the disease. We encourage you, your family and friends to get involved with the many programs and events that we offer locally and Join the Millions® in the fight to Stop Diabetes®.

Proudly Serving San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino and Imperial Counties.
