Greater San Diego Area
The Greater San Diego Area serves over 2.4 million people with diabetes and prediabetes in San Diego, San Bernardino, Riverside, and Imperial Counties. 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 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.
The American Diabetes Association's Greater San Diego Area office provides great local programs for people living with diabetes, their friends and family. For information about programs, please contact Sheila Mazdyasni at firstname.lastname@example.org.
