San Jose, California

SO Finisher 2015 365x285

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 San Jose 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.

 

American Diabetes Month

Join as we salute the 29 million Americans with diabetes — as well as their loved ones — to raise awareness and to create a sense of urgency about this growing public health crisis. The campaign invites people to submit their own stories to capture the authenticity of those who understand this disease best. We invite the diverse diabetes community to stand up and declare “This Is Diabetes"TM. Learn more about this campaign or access to the ADM toolkit at diabetes.org/adm
