Arizonans are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes, as nearly 700,000 of our local family and friends suffer from the disease. This means that one out of every nine Arizonans are affected by diabetes. Thousands more may have diabetes and not yet know it! It is estimated that one out of every three children born after 2000 will be directly affected by diabetes in their lifetime.
That is why the American Diabetes Association's Tucson 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.
