Each state has diverse diabetes communities with unique needs, and we advocate for policy change in every state across the country to improve health care access, coverage, and affordability; support healthy diets; and address health barriers to ensure the needs of these communities are met.
We know the diabetes epidemic hits close to home regardless of which state you live in. Will you join us and become a Diabetes Advocate today to support the diabetes communities where you work, live, play, and pray?
