Arizonans are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as nearly 500,000 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.
We welcome your help.
Your involvement as an American Diabetes Association volunteer — whether on a local or national level — will help us expand our community outreach and impact, inspire healthy living, intensify our advocacy efforts, raise critical dollars to fund our mission, and uphold our reputation as the moving force and trusted leader in the diabetes community. Read more about it later when we update.
