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%.
The American Diabetes Association's San Francisco Bay Area office is committed to educating all Californians about ways they can live healthier lives and support friends and loved ones living with diabetes.
Join us at one of our many events or programs throughout the year to learn about diabetes prevention and management and ways you can help stop diabetes.
The Northern California office serves Oakland, San Francisco, San Jose and surrounding areas.
