People of the District of Columbia are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as thousands of people suffer from the disease, and many others may have diabetes and don't 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 Washington 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.

Project Power, Ongoing Outreach Activities
A faith-based series of six interactive and educational workshops specifically designed for African American churches.

ADA Ambassador Volunteers Needed!
The American Diabetes Association has established a program to train volunteers to implement diabetes/wellness education workshops in the Washington DC Metro Area. The idea is to give people who are passionate about health promotion the resources they need to act by leading workshops on diabetes/wellness in their communities. The American Diabetes Association hopes that these workshops will help get the word out about prevention strategies and the dangers of uncontrolled diabetes. The ADA also hopes these workshops become places community members can exchange ideas about what they are doing to stay healthy. The ideal audience will be people that you know from your communities. The benefits of these programs are tremendous for all involved. Ambassador volunteers have the opportunity to motivate friends, family and members of the community to join the fight to STOP DIABETES! If you, or someone you know, is interested in serving as an American Diabetes Association Ambassador please contact Tiffany Ingram at email@example.com.
